PARATHEATRE TRAINING IN 3 AREAS


SOURCE WORK
Direct intuitive contact with sources of energy in the physical and energetic
bodies towards their spontaneous expression through expanded presence,
movement, action, gesture, and vocalization.

TECHNIQUE WORK
Application of paratheatre trigger methods of inner and outer actions,
such as No-Form, Vocal Creations, Verticality, Movement Vocabulary,
and Spatial Awareness.

Exposure to, and release of, repressed emotions, fears, resistances, and/or
denied aspects of onself towards their acceptance and transformation.
Shadow work gives expression to a dynamic visceral process of

WHAT TO EXPECT
This process is highly visceral, nonverbal, and experiential. Expect to move, sweat, and express yourself. You can also expect to confront self-imposed limitations, movement cliches, and other habits that inhibit spontaneous and creative response. This is not an improvisation workshop nor is it group therapy. We will be learning specific Paratheatre methods to access the body's internal sources of energy towards expression in movement, sound, and action. Limited to 10 participants.
