ABOUT ROBERT WYALD
Robert Wyald—like you, every moment a coordination of many efforts throughout time, including trees, algae, sunlight, plants, and humans—has moments as a producer, director, actor, artist, writer, guide and multicellular organism symbiotic with plants and microorganisms. As it seems that it’s always been a collective biological collaboration, we’ll continue with the pronoun we. We have coached, directed, and performed in improvisational theater since the turn of the century beginning with BATS Improv and Leela, and we consider the values and skills of improvisation an amazing foundation for all things creative: let’s raise a glass to cooperation, presence, humor, and the uninhibited unconscious! Many moons ago, Wyald earned a degree in Ecological Design from Stanford University and a masters from SFIA providing breakthrough exposure to methods for the imaginative process and a deeper relationship to the Earth. We went on to co-create, produce and act in our own shows called Poetry Nap, La décadanse, and Knights of Revery. Now, as a graduate of Hakomi and other altered states training, we believe that we can explore our consciousness in playful and meaningful ways through improvisation and ritual theater in a context of compassion & mindful somatic awareness. A whole lotta gratitude goes out to our friends, family, teachers, all relations, and the grace of good luck. We’re not sure if talking in the third person is royal, strange, or impersonal, so as a shift… I look forward to meeting you. So excited to explore together on our creative journey. Don’t forget, this is always going on.
