Since 1977, Antero Alli has been developing a ritual technology for Self-Initiation — a paratheatre medium — combining techniques of theatre, dance and zazen to access and express the internal landscape. This rigorously physical self-discipline is practiced in small groups of 8-12 in "Ritual Labs" that run 6-12 weeks at a time and usually for two or three nights a week. Paratheatre is highly transformative — careful, it can change your life — and has served as a critical source of inspiration for many of Antero's artistic endeavors, especially his films.

Editorial Reviews

This new form of ritual theatre is uniquely a product of our eclectic and revolutionary age. It is very, very old and very, very new. To enter Antero Alli's magic circle is to experience that kind of time-warp: you become one with with the first paleolithic shamans dancing to the bear-god. You will know yourself here-now as you have never known yourself before, and you plunge into science-fiction futures in which humanity is expanded mentally and physically beyond our wildest hopes.
