on self-created pressures and presence

"In this non-performance oriented medium, the external pressure to 
perform is released and replaced by the self-created pressures for
increasing the force of our commitment to the particular source,
task, or action at hand. With practice this adjustment reinforces
presence of being, an ongoing aim of this paratheatre work." 
Antero Alli
