•      Hibernia is an further chapter of the realm Kahn & Selesnick created for their project Truppe Fledermaus: The Carnival at the End of the World. Here we find ourselves in following two of the main characters from Truppe Fledermaus, Dr Falke and Lulu. They are otherwise known for their absurdist performances in nature, but in Hibernia they are exploring the realms of augury , spells and sacred magic, where the landscape of Ireland, dreamy and apocalyptic, reveals clues to the itinerant troupe of healers, performers, and charlatans. The winds are changing, the cabarets of weimar are spreading the resistance to hill forts and bogs, and yet Hibernia holds onto its secrets.

                                                                                                                                 The Augury of the Cardinal Directions

         For this augury, a dramatic vantage point is needed, preferably one that fills the participants with strong emotions of awe and terror. once such a place is located, the augur examines the horizon, and notates the feelings that each direction evokes. an example might be: N, departure; NNE, despair; ENE, hope; E, the unknowable; etc. the augur is then blindfolded, and has a long pole put through the sleeves of their jacket until arms stick straight out in opposite directions, like a scarecrow. the augur then spins in a circle until they are dizzy to the point of collapse. the blindfold is then removed; the direction in which the left arm points represents the qualities of the past, the right arm the qualities of the future

                                                                                                                                                 The Augury of Blows

         A nervous looking individual, perhaps someone who looks like they have something to hide, is located and coerced into participation. the augur whacks the victim with a stick until they reveal the times and places of future events. it is recommended that the victim wear a padded suit to avoid permanent injury. note: this form of augury is known to be almost completely unreliable.

                                                                                                                                                              Sea Augury

        The augur stands before the ocean and asks ‘what is coming’, to which the ocean inevitably replies ‘I am, over churches, hovels, the village green, fields, skyscrapers, palaces, until all but the highest peaks are covered.’ in no case has the ocean been known to give an alternative answer, so the augur must decide for themselves whether this form of prognostication has any value.
