Rosie Sommers & Nathan Ooms

residency, NWNM

During a week, Nathan and Rosie develop the research of placing home-made Tantra practices in a theatrical context. They take on tantra, a hyper-interpreted somatic practice, as a paradigm for how self-help practices and somatic practices intertwine and how this influences the image of the self today. They propose exercises around the reconstruction of past intimacies, practise live consenting and allow self-indulgence to ease the struggle of liberation. How do we experience self-discovery, de-subjectification, performance, liberation, through the practice of Tantra For Beginners?
