Bea Xu (they/she/it) is a Chinese-British world-builder, ritualist and psychic worker based in London. Using collaborative play, speculative fiction and therapeutic intervention they design and means-test integral, post-capitalist cosmologies with live participants and fellow LARPers. Bea's work can be seen as a narrative engagement with archetypal shadow - often foregrounding blood magic, decolonized time and non-binary logic with an EcoGothic focus.

Informed by their practice at London's CCPE as a trainee, integrative, transpersonal psychotherapist, they are the creatrix of ritual laboratory LUNARCHY 2.0 and are one of the newest members of OUTSIDEININSIDEOUTINSIDEOUTOUTSIDEIN collective.

She completed the 9th Alternative Education Programme at Rupert in Vilnius and has collaborated with Furtherfield Gallery (London), Omsk Social Club and Ittah Yodah - with work selected for O N C A (Brighton); Ugly Duck (London); Mehringplatz 20 (Berlin); Studio ALTA (Prague); Podium (Oslo); TechArts Gallery (Vilnius); Steuben Gallery (NYC); IAM Festival; UNFIX Festival; Solo Show; Virtual Futures; Arts of the Working Class; Baltan Labs; NewCon Press and Gods & Radicals Press.
