After training the "neutral position" in Playback Theatre, one participant told me that she had improved memory and concentration for 3+ days afterward.
More about you: (Short Bio or any other details you'd like people to know)
I am a facilitator, trainer, theatre artist and nonprofit administrator. Since breakdancing on the playground in 5th grade, i keep discovering a love of dance and the arts, while i've grown a professional life in international development and conflict resolution. I went to the William Penn Performing Arts high school in York, PA and picked up alternative theatre and modern dance at Hampshire and Amherst Colleges where i also learned social dances--swing, contra, salsa and Argentine tango. My main artistic passions are Contact Improv and Playback Theatre, and i've practiced them intensively since 2003 in Washington, DC, Germany, touring the US and now in Central PA. I've returned to my hometown, working to bridge community divisions here with the arts. Active in the Society of Friends and the Church of the Brethren, i live with my wife and two little ones in Marietta, PA.
I need help with...
Currently looking for full-time or part-time paid work, preferably that i can do in South-Central Pennsylvania.
