The Circulation of Animals in the Epoch of Fire by Nissa Nishikawa
Fire is within us all, aglow in the veins of the field, beating rhythms in the body, celestial sparks as thought-form. Whirling rotations within us.
Nissa Nishikawa brings her body to the sun and within this language, an amalgam of flame movements creates a furnace of solidarity. Many suns all interconnected, a locus of illumination.
The Circulation of Animals is the Epoch of Fire weaves twenty-seven gestures from a constellation of interbeings. Here is a dance that holds the unity of opposites and shines a light on the polarity cycles. We are a network of living heat.
Nishikawa embodies the collective form, moving with their solar information, an intersection where the etheric flickers through muscle, the heart heats the wave, and the sound pulse forms the visions. The fire of the sacred plant is here, the frequencies of the meteors and the extra-dimensional, the fire of our rage and joy; a call to prayer is within this fire.
