A 5Rhythms Live Wire Experiment Unearthed
Led by Lorca Simons & Thierry Francois
Let’s gather to whisper and circle from the ground our rites of restoration.
Let’s stand and shout to rally the forces that revitalize our spirited dreams into creative realities.
Let’s surrender our bones to the beat that can hold it all and regenerate our faith in the mystery.
Let’s deliver our stories from the heart of the feet to resurrect the light and shadows that seep, shine and soars through us.
Let’s invite spirit to be our barometer and witness in this exploration and celebration of what it means to be soulfully revived.
Rooted in the Waves Map with live, interactive and in the moment explorations in a grounded container, and concentrated in 5Rhythms Ritual Theater perspectives Lorca and Thierry, in renaissance, will invoke this dynamic practice’s principal: If you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor. Setting your compass for the unpredictable come and be prepared for individual and collective fascination, radical unity and edgy grace.
Lorca Simons is dedicated to the creation of physical theatre that is both interactive and transformative. She followed her instincts to the unique directing vibration known as Gabrielle Roth and a 19 year creative collaboration bloomed. She studied and trained with Gabrielle from the mid-90’s and was a co-founder/co-director of 5RT, the experimental theatre wing of the 5Rhythms world.
In response to Gabrielle Roth’s investigation into what it means to be an authentic human being Lorca created Live Wire 5Rhythms Theatre, which is dedicated to the creation of physical theatre that is both interactive and transformative. Live Wire is rooted in a visionary and rigorous technique for people to become true “athletes of the heart” exploring and investigating the depths of the human spirit. Lorca is committed to scattering the seeds of this transformative process.
Thierry Francois has been dancing from a very early age, beginning with ballet lessons when he was a kid, pursuing theater in his 20s in order to express himself and share his inspiration with others, all the while perfecting himself through numerous practices such as dancing, mime and clown work. He is also a certified and experienced Gestalt therapist. In the early 2000s, he came across 5Rhythms and it enabled him to finally integrate body work into his practice. In 2010, he completed the 5Rhythms Teacher Training with Gabrielle Roth, Waves level, and is currently training for the Heartbeat level with Jonathan Horan. He is also committed to working with men’s groups, through ManKind Project. His unique way of teaching is the result of all these different aspects which he brings to his work with great enthusiasm, communicating his passion in a creative and humorous way. His strength lies in his openness to challenges and his absolute love of music.
