Fee: free of charge
Week 1 : 27 – 31 July 2020
Week 2 : 3 – 7 August 2020
The retreat will be led by the founder and director of the TPC, Thomas Prattki, and members of his team, and offers an insight into the teachings of the centre. Whether you would like to take the retreat as an opportunity for professional and personal development or wish to know more about the 3-year certificate or MA part-time program in Integral Movement and Performance Practice, offered by Rose Bruford College in collaboration with the TPC, this retreat is an excellent opportunity to get to know our work.
The retreat aims to offer space for contemplation and deep listening as well as time for the exploration of an integral approach to movement, performance and individuation. It addresses advanced practitioners interested in a more holistic vision of movement and performance, which takes the body we are as well as the worlds we imagine as a point of departure for the creation of performance.
This dialogue with our senses, inner images and movement impulses wishes to encourage the ongoing development of personal and artistic autonomy and to inspire the creation of performances, which have their roots in our bodySelf.
Participants can choose to join the retreat for both weeks or for the first week only.
27 -31 July 2020
During the first week participants are invited over 5 days to a deep listening experience through meditation and movement, painting and sculpting, embodiment and performance making. Seeking contact with The Body I am, these days aim to give importance to listening in all its variations and how it can deepen our experience of our body as part of a much larger, interconnected field, which stimulates creative research in vastly different areas such as world mythology, eco psychology, holistic healing practices and interdisciplinary performance making. Throughout these days each participant will create a diary, made of paintings, drawings, scribblings, notes and quotes, which then becomes the point of departure for the creation of a short performance/ritual/sharing on the last day of this week.
Participants should have professional experience in the movement based performing, educational or healing arts.
3 – 7 August 2020
Mask, Myth and Individuation
The second week of the summer retreat allows participants to explore the role of mask and myth in our individuation process. Integrating the teachings of C.G. Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, we look at individuation as the process underneath our daily life, which aims at the creation of an autonomous life, where we become the writers of our own life story. Through the use of the Neutral Mask as well as through the making of our own masks we dive into the world of myths and tales to see how they might be able to support the creation of our own myth, our own life story.
Participation in the second week of the summer retreat is only possible for those who have completed the first week as well.
Week 1 : 550,00 Euro
Week 1 and 2 : 950,00 Euro
