We train and perform within a medium of Paratheatre that combines
methods of physical theatre & dance, vocalization, and meditation to
access and express the internal landscape of autonomous forces in
the Body. This work occurs in an asocial climate that supports
a group unity honoring individual integrity and autonomy.
Those reaching proficiency in this medium may be invited
to join us in our next intermedia performance ritual.
