GATHER: A 5RHYTHM LIVE WIRE RITUAL THEATRE LAB
with Lorca Simons
Live Wire is an embodied ritual theatre investigation, grounded in the movement maps of 5Rhythms, devoted to the shapeshifting nature of physical art, and guided by the vision of Lorca Simons and Gabrielle Roth. Designed to inspire, refresh, re-set and connect. Our time will include movement, creative excavations, collective truth-telling and beauty-making.
Let’s gather to whisper and circle from the ground our rites of restoration.
Let’s stand and shout to rally the forces that revitalize our spirited dreams into creative realities.
Let’s surrender our bones to the beat that can hold it all and regenerate our faith in the mystery.
Let’s deliver our stories from the heart of the feet to resurrect the light and shadows that seep, shine and soar through us.
Let’s invite spirit to be our barometer and witness in this exploration and celebration of what it means to be soulfully revived.
Rooted in the Waves Map with live, interactive and in the moment explorations in a grounded container, and concentrated in 5Rhythms Ritual Theater perspectives Lorca will invoke this dynamic practice’s principal: If you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor. Setting your compass for the unpredictable come and be prepared for individual and collective fascination, radical unity and edgy grace.
Join us in this poetic landscape as we come together to nourish ourselves and each other, creating an ensemble rooted in aliveness, returning to wonder and recharging possibility.
The 5Rhythms are an art form. Application and vision are one and the same from an artistic perspective, both evoking creative expansion which is at the root of our practice. The beauty of the 5Rhythms from a theatre perspective is, that we have the opportunity to mirror life, absorbing every morsel of its offerings and giving it all back to the dance over and over again.
In living this practice we embody all the rhythms through every breath we take, through every offering we make. Each gesture being an extension from our body, heart, mind, soul and spirit. A poetic landscape of offering. A free fall, a footfall, a live response to what is happening in us, around us and universally.
We as artists manifest change, offering ourselves and our stories from that deep live wire place inside each of us. A vulnerable electric landscape of unpredictable possibility that lives and breathes inside our bones helping others feel deeply, truthfully, with faith, humor, love and trust.
We invite a creative way of experiencing life from the artistic nature of the body.
With all my heart & soul,
