Ritual Theatre Lab with Lorca Simons
& Lynne Adams
4 Oct – 6 Oct Ottawa
An investigation of the soul through the body
A single thread is cast through space, invoking emptiness – a basket is placed full of blank pages, waiting for whispers and entrances. The unravelling – the revealing tale of the feet, the hips, the hands and the breath – an unveiling of the truths discovered through the 5Rhythms, one body part at a time.
We will write, wonder and weather our way through light and shadow, footfalls and silences, creating the Ritual Theatre of your/our stories, detailed soulfulness. Sculpting spirit into shape, writing soul into story, dancing mind into the wind and racing the heart home.
Furious dancing, mysterious humour and indelible visuals may occur.
LORCA SIMONS is an Artistic Co-Director of the 5RT, the theatre wing of the 5Rhythms® world. A place is has stepped into with her expansive Texan feet first. Born into an experimental theatre family she has her artistic beginnings at her fathers Hip Pocket. She has blazed through productions from Off-Broadway to fringe, her talents can also be seen on television and film. Educated in traditional theatre she followed her instincts to the unique directing vibration known as Gabrielle Roth and a 19 year creative collaboration bloomed. She is committed to scattering the seeds of this transformative process.
LYNNE ADAMS, a lover of edges and depth, is a heart explorer and a wild soul, an actor with over 35 years experience and a dedicated 5Rhythms® teacher. She dances to connect, to find the disconnect, to meet resistance with breath and sweat, transforming it into new shapes of possibility. She dances to understand and accept the body’s changing needs, finding ways to allow rather than coerce, invite rather than force, finding power in gentleness and courage in letting go. She teaches this transformative practice to share how the dance floor is a mirror to our lives, how it re-awakens our potential and purpose.
“I believe that coming home to our bodies in a compassionate and creative way is key to healing this world, one step at a time, one dance at a time.”
