Constructs of Ritual Evolution (CoRE)
It is our intent to create original and physically demanding works of theatre by blending the practice of modern performance art with ancient rituals of body suspension. We have suspended our own concept of physical limitation, pierced the heart of our fears, and transcended the boundaries of social convention in order to further the understanding of the corporeal and spiritual being. Suspension acts combined with traditional performance art and theatre provide us with a new outlet for artistic expression that enables the audience to join us on our emotional journey. By pushing our own boundaries in life and art, we inspire others to explore their own. CoRE is based in Los Angeles,CA. and Houston,TX.

ESP also hosts an annual suspension camping trip that fosters a bonding with nature and group while exploring the limits of the physical self.

Psychotic Suspensions
Atlanta, Georgia
Different people find different things in body suspension. Each person s experience will not necessarily be the same. Some people see it as a means of stress relief, while other people find it spiritual or just help regain self confidence or reassurance. Psychotic Suspensions is the tool to help achieve that.

In no means is this organization trying to mock or replicate any religion. It is just a tool used to accomplish a spiritual or personal experience. For example, many people use prayer as a tool, but they don t always share the same religion. Meditation is a form of prayer, but it is not always to speak to a god, it can be used as a form of self healing, this is similar to body suspension.

Albuquerque, New Mexico
Life as we know it consists of a series of interconnected experiences cumulating in the absolute experiential moment of death. Cause gives way to effect, only to prompt another causal circumstance, the immutable relationship of each moment to the one before it is as significant and inevitable as its relationship to the one it precedes in a fundamental way, ones individual understanding of this concept should invariably bring one to this conclusion. There is only a single moment in time, and it is this moment. It is now. Now is your last and only chance to experience life before you experience death. Luckily, the present reconfigures and repeats itself too many times to count before reaching its terminal climax. The members of Ascension intend to influence what happens in the now for ourselves and for others. Life holds only two promises:

Pain and Death. Pain is a side effect of life. Ascension chooses to experience this moment in its purest form in the pursuit of enlightenment and with the constant reminder that life is as ephemeral as pain.

Skoid is an organic complex, enormous, different. Born in 1999 it is the union of four spirits, four chins, four bodies. An assembled of vital fluids, primordial, that is carried in the bodily expression through the overcoming of physical and mental limits. A separation from the canons that govern our calm way of living. A discussion of our values, a recovery of our instinctive pushes, a recognition of our nature and an acceptance of our own monsters. For a best integration of the different aspects of our life, without the skimming, the censorship, that ourselves apply to our thoughts. Separation, destruction, rielaborazione and rebirth, are the phases that characterize every Skoid performance. An enrichment through the loss. A rearrangement of the chaos.
