Stop by the Independent Project this Friday for a evening full of entertainment and great food. Come and share a relaxed potluck (bring your favorite dish) with a supportive sangha; meet new people and have great conversation; preview a work-in-progress performance of TREe’s original theatrical piece “Requiem’s Bloom;” ask questions of TREe administrators and ensemble members, and learn about TREe’s upcoming projects and methods.
The Theatre Research Ensemble, or TREe, is a participatory arts ensemble researching how creative practices can lead to a more mindful and sustainable culture. They believe performance is an integrative art that can revolutionize our inter-personal relations. They are dedicated to developing insights into interdependence, educational methods, and social activism.
TREe offers workshops, rituals and demonstrations based on the models of the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association, the Living Theatre, Eugenio Barba, Herbert Blau, Jerzy Grotowski, Augusto Boal, Anne Halprin, Antero Alli and many others. Our group serves its members by providing a home for participants to exchange ideas, build community, and cultivate facilitation skills by supporting our contemplative practices.
