Special Kigaku-ho workshop:
A one day practice session on theater as mandala:
The stage itself is a miniature world, a maze of knowledge with as many different entrances as there are participants. Learn how to shape this as a mandala, how to take your place within a mandala, how to operate the geometry of a mandala, and learn the kigaku skills of moving along the lines within the mandala, so as to engage the story from different aspects.
All mandala operate as extensions of consciousness between Great Nature and the person participating in the mandala. We will learn how to produce the magic that brings the audience into the mandala, how to imbue props with elemental, archetypal energy, and how to place them within the mandala in locations that have the most potency.
In short we will be learning ways of creating that magic that happens when piece of theater makes the journey from the play of cultural contradictions to a higher resolution arising from a position of holistic awareness.
