THE OVERALL AIMS OF THIS TRAINING
-- to expand access to the internal landscape towards full-bodied expression.
-- to increase flexibility of the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies
-- to learn and apply new methods of movement, vocalization, concentration



PARATHEATRE TRAINING IN 3 AREAS


SOURCE WORK
Direct intuitive contact with sources of energy in the physical
and energetic bodies towards their spontaneous expression
through expanded presence, movement, action, gesture,
and embodied voice work.

TECHNIQUE WORK
Application of paratheatre trigger methods of inner and
outer action, No-Form, Verticality, Movement Vocabulary,
Spatial Awareness, and much more.

SHADOW WORK
Exposure to, and release of, repressed emotions, fears,
resistances, and/or denied aspects of oneself towards their
acceptance and transformation. Shadow work gives
expression to a dynamic and visceral process of
making the unconscious, conscious.

The crux of this Paratheatre medium

WHAT TO EXPECT
This process is visceral, nonverbal, and experiential; expect to move, sweat, express yourself. You can also expect to confront self-imposed limitations, movement cliches, and other habits inhibiting spontaneous and creative response. This is not an improvisation workshop nor is it group therapy; very little group interaction occurs during this training. Instead you will learn specific Paratheatre trigger methods to increase access to the Body's internal landscape and expression in movement, embodied vocals, presence, and action.

PREREQUISITES
No previous experience in dance or theatre required -- though physical flexibility, stamina, and some meditation experience is a plus. Please refrain from socializing as you enter the workspace and during the workshop itself. Bring a bottle of water (or tea) for hydration and a light protein-based snack to consume during a 15-minute break each day at 3pm. Wear clothes to move freely in that do not have corporate logos &/or images. We work in a scent-free zone; no perfumes or colognes, please.
