The sometimes difficult exposure of personal and collective hypocrisy can,
with self-compassion, heal our relationship with the Personal and Collective
Shadow (our repressed negatives). Paratheatre training will be introduced
towards embodying and expressing this shadow work through presence,
movement, and dynamic comic characters. NOTE: This lab now full.
