The world is your stage.

Once upon a time...​


... the theater was still a sacred game. The theatrical representation of the divine power within us is ancient and found throughout the world. Theater has existed since the Stone Age. Incidentally, the word theater is ancient Greek and means "scene". People went to the theater to recognize themselves.Originally, the theater also had a healing function. One used one's transforming power to go through a process of purification (catharsis).The task of the actors was to reflect the hidden, crowded, deeply human in us completely unadulterated. They avoided everyday language. They spoke with their eyes, their faces, their movements and the strength of their hearts. Actors were once singers, healers, scholars, alchemists, poets and philosophers.

The Theater: An intense place of power​


The place where the Mystery Plays took place was mostly outdoors and offered us a particularly intense place of power.Here we were able to encounter nature more deeply and tune in to its powers.The surrounding landscape was not just a backdrop, but added another player to the action. The location, the wind, the rain, the sun, the constellation of the stars, everything played a role back then. At that time, the stage was deliberately not separated from the spectators. Players, stage and spectators were closely connected. The old master builders also really knew how to use the magic of the earth to offer the audience fantastic acoustics. Investigations revealed that the sound lingers for a particularly long time in those places.  


Going to the theater as part of therapy​


In the healing temple of Epidauros in ancient Greece, going to the theater was even a fixed part of the therapy program.Heroic sagas were only staged once, so as not to reduce the surprising catharsis effect.  But the ancient theater was also the setting for philosophers, politicians, rhetoricians and teachers. The great thinker Plato passionately imparted his archetype theory there and publicly conversed with his teacher Socrates and other philosophers about the spiritual high cultures of Atlantis and Lemuria. There, by the way, art was seen as nothing separate. Everyone there was an artist. The people there also worked very consciously with the healing power of sound. For example, if a sound was in disharmony, they would work on it until the sound was harmonious, until it was "right" and had power. Heavenly music and songs then emerged from such sounds. Disharmonic songs and stories always led to a sonorous "happy end". Singing and laughing were often one.

Mystery plays as a bridge to the Götterwelt​

Mystery plays with theatrical elements also go back a long way and can be found in different parts of the world, such as India and Egypt.You use them to connect more deeply with the world of the gods and to experience the meaning of a myth tangibly.In ancient Egypt, priests and priestesses held the so-called temple sleep. (It is said of the great scholars of antiquity Socrates, Homer and Phytagoras that they were great admirers of that Egyptian healing sleep and had received their wisdom teachings from it.) They explored their inner world of images in a trance state, and then subsequently used the knowledge they gained in the game to be visible to the outside. Mystery plays also took place in the Middle Ages. But they were not welcomed by the church.


And of course storytelling and theater are also closely interwoven with shamanism . The shamanic actor serves as a divine channel and reflects our world drama to bring about purification and purification. Through archaic postures he puts himself in the most diverse states of consciousness, travels to other dimensions and creates divine magic in space with the help of prayers, drums, singing and dancing. Performance and rituals go hand in hand here.
