talent and skill
"Talent and skill each require their own distinct sustaining actions.
Talent can be nurtured by allowing total freedom of self-expression
towards greater fluidity and spontaneity. Skill can develop with
consistent application of technique to clarify the form and
style of whatever material our talent can access."

ANTERO ALLI wrote and directed a series of original theatrical works between 1975 and 2005. Alli's paratheatrical work began in 1977 and is documented in his book, "Towards an Archeology of the Soul" (Vertical Pool, 2003), in four videos and in academia by Nicoletta Isar, Associate Professor at the Institute of Art History, Copenhagen University. Since 1991, Antero has written and directed numerous underground feature films. His literary docufiction movie, "The Greater Circulation" (2005; 93 min) features a paratheatre performance in a critically acclaimed cinematic treatment of poet Rainer Maria Rilke's "Requiem for a Friend". His 2008 feature, "The Invisible Forest" utilizes the radical ideas of French Surrealist playwright, Antonin Artaud to explore the internal landscpae of dreams, memories, and hallucinations. Antero conducts paratheatre labs each year in Berkeley where he resides.
