The folks at Eleusyve Productions are trying again to kickstart The Rite of Sol, one of Aleister Crowley’s Rites of Eleusis. You can check out links to several of the previous productions on DVD on the Rites of Eleusis page at the library, and you can gander at several videos they’ve put online but you should consider heading over to help get the next production going.
“We at Eleusyve Productions are currently working on our 4th full length rock opera based upon the seven planetary theatrical rituals that comprise Aleister Crowley’s Rites of Eleusis. The Rite of Sol, our current project, will be stage over several days in Seattle WA, with additional promotional performances else-where as our schedule and finances permit.
For those of you who are playing along at home, this is our second attempt to get funding for this project. Sadly, we did not reach our first goal. We’ve decreased the amount of funding we’re going to need, as we’re going to have to move to a smaller venue.
The money we collect through Kickstarter will be used to cover the cost of theater rental, insurance, sets, props and costumes for the production.” [via]
