Charming Hostess

Charming Hostess is now working on The Bowls Project, a performance installation based on sex, magic and the apocalypse in Babylonian Jewish amulets. Incantation bowls were inscribed with a householder’s secrets and desires, then buried under the home. The texts speak of mysticism and sex; angels and demons; and the trials and joys of love and sex. Especially audible are the voices of women--their work, hopes, and dreams. The Bowls Project offers a visceral, personal connection to daily life 1500 years ago in the region now known as Iraq.
