PWNW Public Access
A dance exploring compositions that are funny, sincere, strange, and fleshy. Originally performed in the summer of 2017 as part of PWNW’s Rantum Scoot, the work represents, respects, and rejects female archetypes. It distorts and experiments with rituals and pop culture. There is deep darkness and bright, shimmering light. Additional dancers Alanna Marguritte and Fern Wiley, with pianist Charlie Copeland. BUY TICKETS HERE

Meanwhile, this trio of “sistas” will do what they can to survive their circumstances and each other. Written by Liz Morgan

Paratheatre Weekend Training Intensive with Antero Alli

Feb. 17/18 ~ Sat. & Sun.
Noon to 6pm each day

“Inspired by the early work of Jerzy Grotowski, the medium of Paratheatre I have been developing since 1977 combines methods of physical theatre, dance, and Zazen to access and express the internal landscape of autonomous forces in the Body. Though I can’t say this work is for everybody, it seems to appeal most to performers and non-performers alike seeking a safe space to explore their visceral responses to spiritual sources at higher levels of personal freedom and integrity.” – Antero Alli
