Alana Bartol performs “Ask Your Best”

July 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC-7

This event is free, participatory, and open to the public, presented as part of HOT OIL, M:ST’s third annual fundraiser for the performative arts. Donations will be accepted at the event. For more information on the fundraiser and to donate online go to: www.mstfestival.org/hotoil/.

Dowsing or ‘water-witching’ is a form of divination used to locate ground water, buried metals or ores, oil, archeological ruins, and information. Though it has often been associated with witchcraft and the occult, dowsing has been used for prospecting ores and water in Northern Europe and elsewhere since the 15th century.

Dowsing is inquiry; it involves asking questions. The rod’s ensemble of responses is limited to “yes,” “no,” or “unclear”. Learning how and when to ask questions is integral.

You are invited to participate in a one-on-one dowsing session with artist Alana Bartol. Sessions will be limited to five minutes. First come first serve.

What questions are important to you right now? Ask your best.
