Medicine Theater Presents: A Journey into Intuitive Knowing and Spontaneous Play

Improvisation, or the art of awakening intuitive knowing thru spontaneous play, is an ancient art form used as long as humans have existed. This powerful vehicle provides the opportunity to tap into an inner knowing that goes beyond our rational thinking. It exists in a stream of consciousness dimension, similar to the world of our dream time.

Through the art of spontaneous play and intuitive knowing we will improvise our way into unique, liberating and healing relationships with ourselves and each other. We will access incarcerated aspects of our inner being and free them through whole body intention, relationship development, and group play.

The vehicles of prayer (or intention setting) and medicinal music and sounds will help paint the pictures and open the portals into alternate worlds and inner landscapes. Together we will weave these landscapes into stories, journeys and relationships that extend beyond our wildest imagination into the realm of limitless creative possibility.

*Connect to the power of vulnerable creative play
*Discover untapped creative forces within
*Develop a relationship with your sacred fool
*Support in expressing your true voice in front of an audience
*Heal & Release through Laughter
*Access new or dormant aspects of your creative being
*Overcome fears and cultivate new courage
*Practice problem solving skills through creative play
*Experience connection between the creative mind, body

Pamela’s journey as a church-going, Midwestern farmer’s daughter. She enters a Dairy Princess contest for her Dad while secretly wanting to go to an Alice Cooper concert. Life choices along the way asking, Can you be true to yourself while still loving your family of origin?

This is a Nugget Fringe Theater Festival Event.

The decidedly “un-boring” fifth annual Nugget Fringe Theater Festival is back, opening January 17 with a free kick-off party at The Holbrooke Hotel. The festival, which runs from January 17 to 27, promises “Theater Unleashed” with around eighty performances of thirty different shows from around here and around the world on six stages in downtown Grass Valley.  This is a great addition to the vibrant art scene in Nevada County; which received two Arts Cultural District designations from the California Arts Council for both Truckee and Grass Valley/Nevada City.  This year, bold audiences will experience comedy, drama, performance art, stand-up comedy, magic, burlesque and more in this near non-stop theatrical vaudeville, with twenty seven original works and several world premiere events. It is a “must-see” festival for local, regional, and even international indie theater where ticket prices are kept to $10 or so and you’re encouraged to “Binge the Fringe.”
