Spontaneous Myth with Randy Dixon
June 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
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.
The workshop will focus on the creation and use of images to invoke ancient stories as well as the ones emerging today. What was happening thousands of years ago can influence what happened today? We are living myth. Through the use of image work, ritual, personal storytelling we will try to create a safe space to explore the stories that touch us at our cores. We will “get out of our skins” and learn about the honesty of play. We will use our dream images to create plays. It will be hard work and a high level of risk will be involved.
Any format of improvisation is the container for mythological imagination. Improvisation allows us to explore the uncharted, unmapped territories of our stories and live to explore another day. We can see our myths and tell the tale together.
David Mamet in Writing in Restaurants says, “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.
