The Sandwich: Transforming Consciousness Bite by Bite is a neo-psychedelic performance work inspired by Albert Hoffman’s serendipitous discovery of LSD. In 1943, the Swiss chemist absorbed a small quantity of an unknown substance through his fingertips while attempting to re-synthesize the molecule ergot – a fungus that grows on diseased rye. Hoffman’s hallucinatory self-experimentations would go on to radically change how people experience the world.
Part Alice in Wonderland, part Requiem For a Dream, part Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Sandwich is a transformative journey through a mindscape of altered states that will uncover the incredible and find new particles of truth floating in an ocean of insignificance.
