IHC After Dark: Aleister Crowley’s “Bartzabel Working” Ritual

L&M Arts presents The Bartzabel Working by Brian Butler on Tuesday, December 4th, 2012. In conjunction with the current exhibition For The Martian Chronicles, L&M Arts is pleased to present The Bartzabel Working, a performance by filmmaker and artist Brian Butler. Based on a ceremonial evocation of the spirit of Mars, first written and performed in London in 1910 by the famed British occultist Aleister Crowley, the ritual later became part of Los Angeles history in 1946 when Jack Parsons conducted his own version of this rite with the intention of placing a Martial curse on a pre-scientology L. Ron Hubbard.
