08 Jul–28 Jul 2019

Porto, PT

Alive … & then Some is a lab + performance series conceived and co-facilitated by Emma Waltraud Howes & Just in F Kennedy researching the experience and analysis of trance forms as well as its translatability into live performance, namely taking the form of lucid (sci-fi) opera. Alive … & then Some plunges without hierarchy into various trance states and operatic voice practices. Exercises include but are not limited to: Guided Meditation, Osho dynamic meditation, pinballing, group hypnosis, death growling, holy ghost method acting, soft headbanging, and metal baroque. Applying a method of deep observation, participants will not only practice the profound but also how to look at it. Through automatic response, exchange and journaling, the laboratory also addresses the challenges of interpreting transcendental experience.

All micro-labs will be drop-in and a sliding scale fee from 10€. Open to all willing to dive into various body/voice practices and into the wormhole of reckless abandon and articulation. Please wear comfortable attire to dance in. The lab will be help in English.
