THE ENTRY INTERVIEW
For those interested in doing this work
three areas of paratheatre work
ParaTheatrical ReSearch Workspace, Berkeley CA
Over the past thirty-five years of doing this work, I have observed three
overlapping areas of paratheatrical process. Advancement in this medium
requires a persistent commitment to all three areas of work. - Antero Alli
Any exposure of oneself (to oneself) to difficult emotions, fears, resistances, unconscious complexes and fixations, and/or denied aspects of onself towards their acceptance, transformation and/or release. Shadow work expresses a dynamic process of making the unconscious conscious that can be assisted by technique work.
Developing skill in this medium requires repeated application of techniques such as No-Form, Polarizations, Contact Point, Vocalizations, Verticality, The 5-Phase Physical Warm-Up, Resonance, Movement Vocabulary, Spatial Awareness, and Jogging Forms. The overall purpose of technique work is to bring more precision and clarity of form to shadow work and source work.
The immersive experience of direct intuitive contact with energy sources in the body, and its enveloping field or aura, and a conscious surrender to their influence. The aim of source work is to expand the capacity for full-bodied access and expression of internal sources through movement, ritual actions, sounds and songs, symbolic gesture, and asocial group interplay.
