Event description

Description

Clear a space. Bring yourself. Be curious.

MYTHWORK IS A CREATIVE, REFLECTIVE PRACTICE INVOLVING RITUAL, STORY AND MOVEMENT. IT PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ACTIVE AND EMBODIED SELF REFLECTION.

IT CAN BE PRACTICED BY ANYONE WHO IS CURIOUS, WHO WISHES TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES CREATIVELY AND WISHES TO TAKE PART IN THIS PROCESS WITH OTHERS

Perhaps you wish to reconnect with feelings of creativity?

Perhaps you want space to ask questions of yourself?

Perhaps you want to connect in shared process with others?

Perhaps you wish to engage and express another part of your self?

In this 2hr workshop we will introduce the practice of Mythwork. You will be invited to explore and express your intuitive creativity through the embodied and experiential practices of drama and movement. We will lead you through movement meditation, myth enactment, ensemble performance making and personal reflection. Mythwork draws on the practices and principles of drama and movement therapy, and is informed by concepts of Jungian psychology, contemporary theories of intersubjectivity, authentic movement, mythopoesis and ritual theatre. In the shared process and experience of the workshop space, you can come together in community with others to witness and be witnessed, to share in a creative process, to see yourself reflected in another, to make meaning through ceremony.

'I am large. I contain multitudes.' Walt Whitman

Facilitators and storytellers Helen and Natasha lead this short introduction, which will will focus on a theme of opening, and invite participants to take space to open up to themselves; to the multitudes within each of us.

Why Myth?

Myths span the expanse of human experience. We can recognise and understand archetypal and innate aspects of ourselves through them, and they can allow us to feel that we are part of something bigger. It provides a container, that we replicate in practice with one another, creating a safe and supportive environment in which we make tangible the depths and breadths of our experience. Through myth may we give form to feeling; the self may be revealed to the self.

What is a Theatre of Ceremony?

How does ritual and ceremony inform our lives? How can they benefit our wellbeing and our developing sense of ourselves? How do we create space for meaningful reflective and creative practice? How do we come together in community, in shared experience to grow, heal, develop and understand ourselves and each other better? We are curious. And we bring these questions to the spaces and workshops that we hold.

We, our work and our spaces are open, non-judgemental and non-confrontational, and we ask all participants to join with the same attitude.

Please wear clothes that you are comfortable to move in.

Feel free to bring a journal.
