In todays ideas factory, the idea my group liked most was kind of like a ritual or meditation. It has to do with cutting string that represents a life-span, and then makign a candle and lighting it in a big dark room to make people think about they are going to bring light into the world. I like the idea of a cumulative effect in a peice of work, and that it put's other (than the artist) people's stories at the centre, like Es Devlin i suppose who works with egos like Lady Gaga and Kanye West. I theatre performance kind of echoes a religious experience as you are coming together to collectively venerate a performer, particular ideas, or even just the collective experience itself.
