Embody empathy, find your breath, connect.
True Body Project holds several trainings each year to empower others to lead True Body classes and workshops and/or support their embodied leadership journey. The curriculum is heavily weighted in somatic experiencing, empathy, mindfulness, attunement and space holding, with writing, art-making, play and other techniques shared as part of the curriculum.
Our most current format is a week-long training with emphasis on cross-cultural sensitivity to trauma and resilience.

COMMUNITY ENGAGED THEATRE
Let us connect your stories.
True Body Theater brings to life the stories and experiences of all community members from different genders, ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, etc. With the guidance of theater experts, choreographers, and True Body’s integrated methodology, our theatrical pieces are always grassroots, site-specific, and organic. Our fundamental process makes it easy for community organizers with little theater experience to create rich, powerful works that capture the true voices of their contributors.
Community Engaged Theater 4-step Process:
Focus: Collaborating with local partners, the team converges on a project, theme or issue they would like to address.
Outreach: True Body team goes out into the community to conduct writing and movement workshops, art projects, and surveys related to the theme. They also cast community members, with or without theater experience, to participate in the final work.
Compilation: Working collaboratively, the team strings together the stories gathered from the community to create the theatrical work. The team receives coaching from True Body Project and affiliated experts on the script, choreography, and acting.
Expression: The completed piece is performed to the public, who witness the theatrical expression of the collective voices of the community.
