This website documents a medium of group ritual dynamics created by Antero Alli
using methods of physical theatre, vocalization, and standing meditation in a highly
visceral, movement-based version of Carl Jung's active imagination for making the
Unconscious, conscious. Between 1977 and 2019, this paratheatrical work was
explored in non-performance oriented asocial settings, or Labs, until any given
group reached proficiency in this medium, whereupon performance vehicles
were developed and staged (in Seattle WA, Berkeley CA, and Portland OR)
Click this for video documents of some of these performances and Labs.
After the Autumn Equinox of 2019, these Labs and Performances
were discontinued ending a 42-year era of ParaTheatrical ReSearch.
