Wind in a Mirror...Ayahuasca Visions by Josie Hyde is a boldly original multimedia show about guilt and transcendence, a play of ironies climaxing in the Amazon in a ceremony with Ayahuasca, the visionary Vine of Death. Accompanied by an original art video and soundtrack.

The unique mix of spoken word and song is accompanied by a surreal art video with the music of Tom Lackner and Amazon shamans Don Agustin Rivas Vasquez and Don Jose Campos.
