In 2015 Self-With-Others training and DUENDE came unexpectadly into my life and offered me an artistic home and a big, colourful, multilanguaged and hyper-talented community of artists friends and collaborators. Since 2017 I teach SWO in small and big groups in Athens, at DUENDE’s international residencies in Lesvos and the DUENDE School of Ensemble Physical Theatre’ s annual based educational programme. This 6-year long exciting period of my life is, among other things, the richest and most heartful learning experience of my life.

‘Self-With-Others’ is the result of the practical work and experience of its creator, John Britton, and is based on a simple but meticulous synthesis of interrelated principles applied to specific exercises, structured, semi-structured and free improvisations. These principles (healthy and useful ways of thinking and behaving) relate primarily to stage function and are based on the evaluation of pleasure as a working guide.
