How can imaginative and embodied practices help us converse with polarised aspects of the world and ourselves? - Embodied polarization as potential and dilemma
How can imaginative and embodied practices help us converse with polarised aspects of the world and ourselves? What are the possibilities and limitations of the creative methods we use are discussed through a performative self-experience method called the Heroine’s/Hero’s journey.
The Heroine’s/Hero’s journey is based on the mythological work, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, and symbolizes the archetype who starts an adventurous journey, following her or his call. Out of this mythological script a group self-experience workshop in form of one-week ,utilizing methods from theatre, gestalt therapy,bodywork, dance and indigenous rituals was created. The Heroine’s/Hero’sjourney is scripted as a holistic change and transformation process. Polarization is a central aspect of this journey where the heroine/hero has to meet her or his counterpart who wants to stop the heroine/hero following her or his call. The polarization of these different aspects within oneself, the heroine/hero who has a desire, a wish and the counterpart who does not want change, meet in the journey in form of a confrontation. In the confrontation, the polarizing aspects within oneself areembodied and acted it out through words, emotions and body postures.
