My research areaBy Prabuddho

 I would like to explore theatre or comedy involving touch. Expression could be non-verbal (sound only) or verbal or silent (physical only) – all three could be explored! The workshop could lead to a short performance or just be fun in itself.

Alternatively (or also) I could share a performance (either briefly prepared sketch or an improvised scene on a given theme) – this would perhaps involve a group of people and we could devise it together.

I like to be involved in performances or shows.

facebook pic1I have some experience of Contact Improvisation sessions with Jocasta Crofts, and extensive and varied workshop experience in emotional expression, relating, theatre, meditation and many others over the years.  I particularly like theatre as a form of expression, performance, and a way of exploring myself – in the last few years I have attended quite a few Improv comedy workshops in London and Osho Leela. I always enjoy performance – mainly sketch comedy and Improv. I am a regular visitor to Osho Leela and have enjoyed being in the community here these last two weeks.

I also facilitate the Humaniversity Aum meditation in London – an emotional expression process – as well as Osho meditation and dance events.

Experiment: The Comedy of Touch

Guess relating has been there ever since, but more actively after 2006, spending time in Auroville, Tamera and Findhorn, as intentional communties, learning about myself, love, nature and possibilities for a world that I actually want to live in. Adding dance/ movement psychotherapy, authentic movement and movement medicine, plus the way of council, I would say I am a passionate communitarian being, a dancer, a nature lover and a slow Portuguese beach

I would negotiate with participants what would then happen to any material collected.

KirsiI don’t have prior experience with CI (and very limited exposure to other dance forms either), but I’m very much interested to learn about this field quite unknown to me. I’m fully aware of my inexperience, and thus I totally understand if this is an obstacle to participate. But maybe you could use me as a tool to test a total beginner’s view of things :)
I’m working in the field of empowering people to fulfill their potential, in a project that aims to support long-term unemployed people to find employment/study place/other activity that’s meaningful to them. In my social sciences studies I’ve concentrated into employment, participatory approaches & development studies.
I have some little experience in different meditation/mindfulness techniques, and I’ve practiced some yoga in order to develop my strength & flexibility (although lately too little). However, these practices don’t involve much interaction with others. That’s why I’d love to explore some additional methods for personal and interpersonal growth.
I’m interested to deepen my understanding about all the potential paths into empowerment and being present in the moment, especially through communication with others. I believe CI and other practices/experiments present in the Touch&Play event could provide me with new insights in this journey.

I have studied Dance movement psychotherapy. I work as Psychology and psychotherapy as well.

I’m specially interest in searching movement that comes from inside, site specific dance, land art, dance as a creative process, emotional connections…

I would like to share my experience of transparent communication in groups.
The topic that interests my most at the moment is “burn-out”. I really see a lot of people (including me) who overload themselves in order to do important things. I see it in political contexts as in many others.

With consciousness and awareness I would like to spend some time in a group dedicating ourselves to our expectations towards ourselves and others.

For several years I went to reunions practicing ‘transparent communication’ where we learned how to be honest, to share another person’s story and the own. Now actively listening helps me in the trauma support group that we founded. I really appreciate being aware of what’s happening in an interaction. I also do anti-sexist and awareness-group work.
