The Creation of The Tarot Reading
The Tarot Reading began in 2016, at the invocation of Head Summoners Alan Katz and Quill Nebeker.
It was called to the mortal plane to be a place for the unusually bold - both in audiences and performers. It is a ritual for one and all, a mystical event that appears out of thin air and disappears into smoke. It has since had multiple iterations, corporealizing all over the DC area whenever it is summoned.
Tarot III occured in October, 2017 at The #9 Lounge at Evening Star Cafe in the Del Ray neighborhood in Alexandria, VA. It featured Mediums B'Ellana Duquesne, Gwen Grastorf, Allyson Harkey, Jon Jon Johnson, Michael "Cariño Valentine" Moya, Niusha Nawab, and Ms. Buffy Wylde. Alan Katz played The Fool. The Summoning Team was led by Alan Katz & Quill Nebeker with Joan Cummins. The Alchemy team was led by Cody Whitfield, with Allison Poms.

Creators and audience members looking for something fresh and daring have a lot to learn from The Tarot Reading, and a lot to look forward to.
Plenty of experimental shows say that you’ll never see the same performance twice, but it’s rare that one can make an honest claim to being a completely different piece of art from one performance to another.
