RITUAL-BASED PHYSICAL THEATRE
in training and performance
~ Portland, Oregon
~

This website documents a medium of Paratheatre developed by Antero Alli
that combines methods of physical theatre, vocalization, and meditation to
access and express the internal landscape.
The training process occurs in a
non-performance oriented asocial climate honoring individual integrity and
autonomy. Those naturally inclined to this paratheatrical work may be
invited to join us in our next intermedia performance ritual.

Antero Alli, Artistic director
(since 1977)

MISSION STATEMENT
ParaTheatrical ReSearch PDX is an intermedia physical theatre group
combining spontaneous ritual dynamics, vocal incantations, improvised and
composed music & songs, film, and spoken poetry to explore the metaphysical
dimensions of human experience. We don't do social, political, or morality
issues or conventional stage plays. We aim to incite strong visceral and
spiritual resonances for arousing the Poetic Imagination
from its deep cultural slumber.
- Antero Alli
