Pandramatics is an arena for improvising and experimenting with action,
dialogue, and ritual, using ordinary things as a springboard for
creativity. You don't need experience in acting to take part. It is
both serious and fun.
April 12th - 2008 Prasada will be leading a day workshop of relaxation and body awareness
exercises to express feelings about life and spirituality. It will help us to open ourselves to the creative and the devotional aspects of life.
David and Caroline Brazier presented a session as part of the De Montfort University Cultural Exchanges Programme 2008 called "Writing Abour Spirituality in a Secular Age". Caroline read an extract from the manuscipt of the new book that she completed writing this week.
David read some of his poetry. Both talked about the history of their involvement in writing and the influences of spirituality, psychology and the arts on their work. The session was chaired by Kaspalita Thompson.
We are well into the process of our Cultural Critique week: being and thinking creatively. Yesterday was a stimulating and interesting day – started off with a check-in and discussion about arts and spirituality followed by a presentation on some of the dub poetry by Lynton Kwesi Johnson and Jean Binta Breeze who we will be going to see tomorrow. In the evening we had a viewing of short films and music video that were used as a springboard for discussions that were both personal and universal - in particular, the themes of the struggling artist and the mystery behind art.
