An Evocation of Bartzabel the Spirit of Mars

Brian Butler's staging of the Bartzabel Working - first carried out by Aleister Crowley in 1910 and reported here last year - has turned up on YouTube. Noot Seear, of Twilight fame, participated as Magus Adjuvant while James Franco had volunteered as the Material Basis.

The Spirit of Mars turns up in the second half with Christopher Emerson substituted for Mr. Franco for the event.

VICE: "What would Crowley have thought about these spectacles, and how do they jibe with his own methods?"

Rodney Orpheus: I think Crowley would have loved it. We're talking about a guy who sold tickets to public performances of "The Rites of Eleusis" after all, so this is exactly in line with Crowley's own modus operandi.
