Limited Capacity seats available

Randy Dixon, Artistic Director, Unexpected Productions

  • Description: Spontaneous storytelling is a place where mythic thinking and archetypal images are allowed to live. The myths and images of the imagination arise from the emptiness in improvisation. We have to rely on each other or we will fail. Improvisation uses image to connect with story and archetype. Images from the imagination are allowed to breathe and the archetypes allowed to live. This workshop will focus on the creation and use of images to invoke ancient stories as well as the ones emerging today. Through the use of image work, ritual, and personal storytelling we will create a safe space to explore the stories that touch us at our cores. We will use our dream images to create plays. It will be hard work and involve a high level of risk. Any format of improvisation is the container for mythological imagination. Improvisation allows us to explore the uncharted, unmapped territories of our stories. David Mamet in Writing in Restaurants said, “The theater is not a place where one should go to forget, but rather a place where one should go to remember.” To remember our stories, to remember our origins, to see through a mythical lens that can enhance our lives.
