Transforming our stories through dance and theatre
There is a storyteller in our heads, weaving threads of our experience into the stories we live by. Our personal myths give meaning and answer the question: ‘who am I and what is my place in this world.’ While some stories are full of adventure, others are repetive or lack a clear storyline. Compromises, distractions and stress can all collapse the arc of our story. There is however a way to re-write our life stories.
Life writes its stories in our bodies, which shows in the way we hold our selves and move through the world. Conscious movement, such as the 5Rhythms, offer ways to directly work with our history.
The 5Rhythms have 5 phases or rhythms that take movers on a journey of tuning in (flowing), expressing (staccato), surrendering (chaos), expanding (lyrical) and being (stillness). For this workshop the 5rhythms will be adapted to a 5 stage story structure. Dance will be mixed with bits of theatre to move our stories and those of others. We’ll explore key moments in our stories and see if we can change the script by stretching our identity to include roles that help us move towards growth and fulfillment and say goodbye to old characters that no longer serve us.
