PLAZA: ACTS OF VIOLENCE, I was busy with how the form of the
myth is use to explain what in the world of logic and science has no validity,
for example, apparitions, supernatural healing powers, telepathy. For this
piece I look into sources like Jomanda (a Dutch controversial spiritual healer) communicating warnings or messages to people in different
forms as a medium and people refer to as entities that communicate with 'the underworld'.
For the movement research I studied the possessed body controlled by supernatural powers, like in shamanistic rituals, in Catholicism, the body exorcised by a priest, and the use of masks in prehispanic dances as the medium to communicate with the spirits or the dead.
