Primeval intersection is an intensive performance workshop using the body as a medium for artistic, political, spiritual and social expression. Based on Jungian and Gestalt psychological principles, time based composition and experimental theater techniques, this class offers the students a free and alternative environment to use their body as a medium of expression in a supportive and communal environment. Departing from non-Western ideas of art as ritual and as an essential component of community life, the main goal of this class is to grasp the concept of collective performance practices and to reconcile the differences in "others" through deep understanding of the "self." The class is specifically designed for both, art students who already perform in a public setting and also for those who want to overcome their stage fright and have want to find a new venue of expression. This class will culminate with a performance in a public space. Taught by Guillermo Galindo performer/composer founder and curator of POW! Action Art Festival, San Francisco
