In Shamanik Improv Klasses, renamed and re-imagined as WYALD Ritual Theatre classes in 2019, we use games, dance, musik, guided imagery, the inner and outer worlds, poetry, our wits, our wyrd wyld ways (old skool www), individual, paired, and group sharing, masks, props, kostumes, channeling, charakters, and the unknown to help us explore together meaningful life themes.

Less like acting, more like playing, we allow our creative impulses to come through and manifest shamelessly. We learn techniques that loosen up creativity, collaborate, and help us release inhibitions in a supportive way. In other words, no pressure to “perform”; only pleasure to play, making room for all emotions!

Some Klass titles:

  • Life Series: A Journey from BeforeBirth to the Afterlife
  • Planet Earth Series : A Jolly Jaunt From Who You Are to the Kosmos
  • Material World Series: a Fanciful Fantasia from Home to Spirit
  • Society Series: an Exhilarating Excursion from the Individual to Aktions

“I cannot recommend Doktor Robert’s Shamanik Improv Klasses highly enough. The klasses have been sheer GENIUS. They are works of art that you can crawl inside of and dream, play, cry, laugh, dance and imagine.”

“Martha Graham, Shakespeare, Bertolt Brecht, Carl Jung, Virginia Woolf… anybody who’s ever done anything of importance has been doing Shamanik Improv. They didn’t quite know that name. The name needed to be ripening on a tree and finally the fruit is juicy enough for us to actually devour it and know what it is. It is Shamanik Improv that we’ve all been getting these whispers of for millenia.”

”A magical storytelling journey of the senses, a luscious trip through a timeless tradition, I loved it! Such a special event in a gorgeous, meditative setting. Perfect alternative for a date night.”
