This deck of cards is born out of the project ‘Embodied Oracle’, developed since 2017, with the intention of asking: can the body be an oracle? One result of this work has been a series of workshops that relate practices of movement and attention with practices of drawing, finding analogies between oracular and performative disciplines.
In 2020, this project gained a new name, ‘Oracle’, and a namesake performance was created, which as well as the original question asked: can a show be an oracle?
The cards in this deck are the result of contributions from all participants in the workshops, the creative team that developed the performance and the audience. It is a deck that continues to grow.
Happy readings!
