A Ritual for Elephant & Castle is a new documentary film which explores the transitions currently taking place in the neighbourhood.
The documentary follows artist/shaman Marcus Coates as he sets out on a 'Vision Quest' to search out animal spirits to help guide the local community through a period of change.
Involving local residents from the Heygate Estate, Southwark councillors and a psychedelic doom rock orchestra called Chrome Hoof, the community and artists embarked on a journey into the depths of the neighbourhood in search of alternative ways to find solutions to a shared problem.
The findings from the 'Vision Quest' were presented to the community via a rock-disco-shamanic-ritual at the Coronet Theatre in June.
At this one-off event for Elefest Siobhan Davies Studios presents preview screenings of the film and performance at the Coronet alongside a talk with Michael Smythe (producer for Nomad), Marcus Coates and the writer Will Hodgkinson.
