WHAT WE DO
paratheatre labs, performance, history

TALENT AND SKILL. Talent appears as a fluid capacity for accessing and expressing the internal landscape in a spirit of discovery. Skill demonstrates a dexterity for articulating the internal landscape through externally recognizable forms, symbols, and designs. Talent is wild; feral. Skill is temperance; a taming. Talent appears as presence, spontaneity, creative force; skill shows virtuosity, technique, form. Too much spontaneity can overwhelm skill and turn everything to soup; too much structure can crimp the spirit and stunt talent. The ongoing work of committed performers is to keep striking a dynamic balance between these extremes. - Antero Alli
