Seeking artists, therapists, performers, facilitators, directors, clowns, somatic practitioners, movement researchers, meditators, etc.
The Deep Play Institute (DPI) will be hosting a 2-3 hour event on March 29th, 7-10pm at The Awakenings Wellness Center in Portland, OR. The event will feature 6-9 different experimental facilitators each of which guides a large group through 20-minutes of some kind of experience. The entire 2-3 hours of the event will be composed of back-to-back-to-back guided content, moving directly from one facilitator to the next, curated to create one cohesive guided “flow” for a large group of participants. Think of it like a mixture of a yoga, dance and meditation class – except a lot weirder.
We are seeking out-of-the-box and innovative proposals. For example, perhaps a proposal could involve some sort of odd mixture of any of the following: meditation, partswork, somatics, theatre, visualization exercises, blanket fort-building, inner-monster activating, sounding one’s inner cow and then grazing with the herd, roleplaying as futuristic gurus from the year 3000, picking up tiny pieces of dirt from the ground and then assembling them into some miniature display of Rome which we then worship as a means of dispelling the future autocratic rule of our country, etc.
You are welcome to submit more than 1 proposal. But a proposal must be exactly 20 minutes. And it must be something you will guide a large group of 10-60 people through. Please be specific in your proposal of the activities you would be doing using images and examples. Proposals are due by February 5th
Facilitators will be paid 70% of the profit generated by the event, divided equally amongst facilitators.
