THE ENTRY INTERVIEW
For those interested in doing this work
three areas of paratheatre work
ParaTheatrical ReSearch Workspace, Berkeley CA
Over three decades of doing this work, I have observed three
overlapping areas of paratheatrical process and how development
in this work demands equal commitment to all three. - Antero Alli
The immersive experience of direct intuitive contact with sources of energy in the body and its enveloping auric field towards a conscious surrender to their influence. Source work expands access and expression of the internal landscape that can be advanced through technique work.
Developing paratheatre skills involves consistent application of specific inner and outer actions -- such as No-Form, Polarizations, Contact Point, Vocalizations, Verticality, The 5-Phase Physical Warm-Up, Vocal Resonance, Movement Vocabulary, Spatial Awareness, Jogging Forms and the more advanced paratheatre work of Asocial Group Interplay. Technique work tempers source work and shadow work towards greater clarity, economy, and precision of form.
Any exposure to repressed emotions, fears, resistances, unconscious complexes and fixations, and/or denied aspects of onself towards their acceptance, transformation and/or release. Shadow work gives expression to a dynamic visceral process of making the unconscious conscious that can be greatly assisted by technique work.
