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.
This process occurs in an asocial climate supporting
a group unity honoring individual integrity and autonomy. Those naturally inclined
to this work process may be invited to join us in our next performance vehicle.

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, artistic director.
