"The Sacred Ancestral Journey Home"
Dynamic Theatre & The Medicine Wheel
"To forget one's ancestor's is to be a brook without a source, and a tree without roots"
We will explore, listen to, and work with the Individual Soul, the Family Soul, the Tribal Soul, and the Collective Soul. Each soul exists within its own right and yet cannot exist without the other three, within one we find all, and within all, we find home. Our journey home means we go everywhere but actually we go nowhere, and in going nowhere we must be prepared to stand in the soul fire of each of the four directions. In each direction we find the gifts and legacies left by those who came before us, here is where we begin to share and to tell their often untold stories, knowing that within these histories there was someone who prayed and wished for someone just like us. Dynamic Theatre© allows us to go deep into the soul of life itself, and it is here where we can come home to ourselves, our families, our tribe and in so doing we welcome and bring everyone home, for home is where the heart is.
“A community needs a soul if it is to become a true home.
You the people must give it this soul”
Pope John Paul II
Dynamic Theatre (DT) was created by Mark Wentworth and Filipe De Moura in 2003. With a simple mission statement that embraces a desire and a passion to make a difference in the world. Inspired by Psychodrama, Shamanism and Systemic Therapies, it is an "action method" using spontaneous drama to help people understand the underlying issues which run through their everyday lives.
As Mark explains “...this is a time when our societies and communities are in the process of change, we are moving from the “I” and “Me” phase into the “Us” and “We”...with a sense of purpose and everyone making a valid and worthy contribution to their own societies and community...”
Dynamic Theatre is one way of reconnecting people with all that they are, it is a way of exploring, through acting out and play, the shadows of society and openly and honestly working with the wounds that need to be healed. Time and time again one of the comments Dynamic Theatre receives is the truth that it brings to any given situation. It is now being taught in many parts of the world. It is a technique which offers hope, inspiration and resolution to the challenges of daily living facing young and old throughout the world today.
