ParaTheatrical ReSearch is a process of group ritual dynamics developed by
Antero Alli combining methods of physical theatre, vocalization, and meditation
to access autonomous forces in the internal landscape of the Body as movement
resources.
This visceral, somatic medium mirrors Carl Jung's active imagination
for making the Unconscious, conscious and explored primarily in non-performance
asocial workshop Labs. When a given group reached
proficiency in this medium
performance vehicles were developed with participants and directed by Antero.

NOTE: as of Autumn Equinox 2019, all workshop Labs and Performances
were discontinued ending a 42-year era of ParaTheatrical ReSearch.
