PSP in art-e: “Farewell to old me” [workshop “Polytechno”]

A short snapshot from the work

at the workshop”Polytechno” (accompanied by my music from the composition “ARS MORIENDI”).
It is an exercise on improvised movement about the theme of the title, for one person.

The improvisator expresses on stage spontaneously,

with her/his own way, the experience of passing from one situation A to a new situation .
The person symbolically leaves behind his/her habitual aspects of self, through which he or she has been experiencing situation A, before the change to situation B occurs.

This is an exercise of my approach PSP (Process-Stage-Praxis) applicable in several forms of stage-arts.
Similar patterns of PSP exercises I use also when I train in Playback Θέατρο.

The theme of the improvisation in this exercise

is leaving behind aspects of ourselves, as we change constantly no matter if we wish to or not.
Improvises Niki Kirtsi. 


PSP (Process-Stage-Praxis) is an approach for embodied interaction, that I devised since 2006.

PSP is an adjunctive skill (a complementary tool) for any kind of work that has to do with process and awareness: psychotherapy, counselling, social interventions, education, art, Organizations / work-field.

PSP is not an autonomous psychotherapeutic modality or some form of art-therapy.

PSP simply enriches the already existing tools of someone working in the fields mentioned at the paragraph above and does not substitute professional training in these fields (you may see in You Tube: “The ‘Motif’ exercise in PSP”).
It is noted that:

(a) “process” is meant as the continuously flowing stream of our personal experience producing the sense of “I am” and of our subjective physical and psychological reality,

(b) “awareness” is meant as the ability to sense what happens in this stream on multiple levels (it is a fundamental means of personal growth and the “fulcrum” of any kind of work with the process).
