SUMMER 2016

The DREAMING Lab

PARATHEATRE TRAINING with ANTERO and SYLVI ALLI

6 WEEKS: JUNE 12th to JULY 17th in Portland
SUNDAY NIGHTS from 7:30pm to 10pm


THE DREAMING LAB >> INTENT

 



In this Dreaming Lab, methods of Paratheatre and Embodied Voice will be used to amplify the effects of a ritual choreography created from three to five movements recalled from our nocturnal dreams. We'll bypass dream analysis in favor of tapping the personal and collective Unconscious as a wellspring of creative force unleashed in motion, form, presence, and sound. When prepared and performed, this dreaming ritual can evoke the images, the emotions, and the power of the dreaming while fully awake and heighten awareness of the daytime/dreamtime continuum. This Dreaming Lab also continues the ongoing process of paratheatre training for those motivated to develop their skills and talents in this medium.
