This website documents a Paratheatre medium of group ritual dynamics developed by
Antero Alli combining methods of physical theatre, vocalization, and standing meditation
to access the autonomous forces of the Internal landscape as movement resources.
This visceral, somatic process mirrors Carl Jung's active imagination for making the
Unconscious, conscious. Between 1977 and 2019, this group work was explored in
non-performance oriented asocial Labs until any given group reached proficiency
in this medium and then, performance vehicles were developed and staged.
-- Click this for video documents of these performances and Labs --
NOTE: after Autumn Equinox 2019, all Labs and Performances
were discontinued ending a 42-year era of ParaTheatrical ReSearch.
