Ride on the Magic Mushroom

Ride on the Magic Mushroom

M.A. Candidate Ivan Espinosa's recent essay "A Ride on the Magic Mushroom" was published in NYU's Caustic Frolic, the academic journal for New York University’s Center for Experimental Humanities.

In this article, Ivan theorizes a new type of “eco-centric theater” that attempts to manifest the intelligence and consciousness of the Earth on stage, gesturing towards an ontological reality in which humans can cultivate active relationships with terrestrial agents that we have only lately come to think of as "inanimate."
