New Illusion of Purity performances upcoming in November

Two new Illusion of Purity poetry readings have been scheduled for the first half of November.

On 4th November, Illusion of Purity will be one of the several poets/poetry projects to read during the monthly "Sprekende Ezels" poetry night. Place of the event is cafe Hotsy Totsy, Hoogstraat, 9000 Gent, Belgium.

The night commences at 20:30 and several poets will perform. Illusion of Purity will do a set of approximately 20 minutes.

12th November, Illusion of Purity is one of two guests on an autistic literature night organised by PASS Brugge. The night takes places in Brugge, Belgium, and is organised by PASS, a social organisation for people within the autism spectrum.
Illusion of Purity will be one of two guests participating. The other guest will be Dries Gilliaert reading from his book, while Illusion of Purity will do a 1 hour poetry set. Both will do a short interview too.

Given the nature of the event, it is recommended to contact PASS in case if you wish to attend. pass.brugge(AT) for more information.

Illusion of Purity continues to seek for new locations to perform, as it is important that the message against the taboos on autism, OCD, etc is spread in as many places possible, both in Belgium or in other countries. Hopefully I can announce more gigs shortly.

A collection of new poems is being worked on after completing the conceptual last booklet where erotophobia was a central subject.

About illusionofpurity

I am the founding member and only permanent member of the Illusion of Purity project. The project deals with life with psychological problems such as autism, manic depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorder, ... and tries to use art to break the taboo about these disorders. Too many people suffer in silence because of the taboo and the many wrong stereotypes. Using art and speeches as a weapon against these taboos and stereotypes, this project aims to raise awareness about the true life with psychological problems. Additionally, a more philosophical and political undertone may appear throughout the project, although the main focus is mental health and the surrounding taboos. I myself have Asperger Syndrome, OCD/anxiety disorder and suffer from unipolar depression. Activism at this moment consists of mainly (but not solely) speeches and poetry. This may increase to include other activities in the future too. The project is based in Spain at the moment, my personal origins lie in Belgium.
