Rosie Sommers

Tantra for Beginners

Nathan, Rosie and Castélie work on a self-made, absurd Tantra practice and place it in a theatrical context. They take on Tantra, a hyper-interpreted somatic practice, as a paradigm for how self-help and somatic practices are intertwined and how this affects the image of the self today. They propose exercises around the reconstruction of past intimacies, practice live consenting and allow self-indulgence to ease the struggle of liberation. How do we experience self-discovery, de-subjectification, achievement, liberation, through the practice of Tantra For Beginners?
