Exploring Dreams Through Theater Arts
Theater Arts can help bridge dreams into theatrical form in playful, experiential workshops. With elements from Gestalt psychology, Psychodrama, and Improvisational Dream Theater, Dreambridge founder Angel Morgan, PhD, will discuss how dreamers cast, direct, and if they wish, act within their dream ‘scenes’ with Dr. Morgan's assistance. Learn when and how to creatively, intuitively rewrite and redirect parts of the dream ‘script’ in the service of insight, health, healing, and wholeness.
In This Session:
- Explain how Gestalt psychology, Dream Psychodrama, and Improvisational Dream Theater can intersect to help dreamers find insight, health, healing, and wholeness
- Differentiate between dramatized dreams that feel ripe for transformation, and dramatized dreams that do not seem to want or require any rewrites in the dream ‘script’
- Understand how Dream Drama methods may be applied with theatrical and/or therapeutic groups
