This intensive introductory course focuses on strengthening and expanding the practitioners’ ability to bear witness, ‘find the medicine’ and work creatively with stories of suffering and transformation. Students practice deep listening, and how to become vessels of steadiness, compassion and wisdom, for themselves as well as for others. In order to create a safe environment in which to do this work, most of our practice work will involve creating theatre from students’ own life stories both individually and in partnership with one other class member.
