MISSION STATEMENT
ParaTheatrical ReSearch provides performers a safe space
to experiment and unravel whatever habits are crimping
their talents to non-performers seeking greater access to
creative states embodied in presence, movement, and
vocalization. When participants reach proficiency in this
paratheatre medium, they may be invited to collaborate
with us in our next intermedia performance vehicle.

- Antero Alli, director
