Theatre of Awakening
Presence ~ Embodiment ~ Expression
Theatre of Awakening is a blend of self-discovery and creativity, where performances are created from personal stories and inner experiences. It is autobiographical theatre for well-being, trauma recovery and social change.
We give equal attention to the aesthetic and transformational aspects of the creative process. Using improvisation, somatics and enquiry we make spontaneous solo performances, then we craft them.
By working in this way we free up our self-images and beliefs, realizing our potential and the gifts we have to bring. As we explore together, we come across parallels, mutual recognitions and emergent collective narratives.
This is when the whole undertaking becomes an agent for community building and social change.
"There’s a vitality, an energy, a life-force that is translated through you into action, and because there’s only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost."
