Pyriform Press is honored to present
The Ascension Prophecy|{PAPER} #9
a performance ritual by
La Vonne Natasha Caesar

This handbound book is a new manifestation of the poetry-filled ritual originally performed by La Vonne Natasha Caesar and Joyce LeeAnn on October 3, 2012, at the Amarachi Lounge in Brooklyn, New York.

The performance begins and ends with the Vedic Agni Hotra ritual while, at its heart, light sparkles off the shards of a personal story. Two character versions of La Vonne’s self perform musically rich poetry that explores a shattering experience—waking from a coma and overcoming a traumatic brain injury—and transforms it into a resonant celebration of renewed perception and life.
