Antero Alli ANTERO ALLI, founder/director of ParaTheatrical ReSearch, has written, directed, and performed in numerous experimental theatre productions between 1975 and 2005. His paratheatre work was initiated by David Rosenbloom in 1977 and documented in Alli's book, Towards an Archeology of the Soul (Vertical Pool, 2003), in four videos, and by Nicoletta Isar, Professor at the Institute of Art History, Copenhagen University. Alli's personal paratheatre experience inspired the creation of a series of feature-length art films including "The Greater Circulation" (2005; 93 min) a critically acclaimed cinematic treatment of poet Rainer Maria Rilke's "Requiem for a Friend", and "The Invisible Forest" (2008; 111 min) a docufiction exploring the radical ideas of French Surrealist playwright, Antonin Artaud. Antero conducts paratheatre labs each year in Berkeley California where he resides. More:

Susan C. RobertsSUSAN C. ROBERTS, MS, MA, MSW, is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Washington, D.C. Inspired by James Hillman's call for a "depth psychology of extroversion," she has also sought to engage with psyche in the world beyond the therapeutic consulting room. For nearly two decades she served as a counselor in independent schools, working with adolescents, families, and teachers both individually and in groups. During that time, she developed a life skills program for high school students that merged psychological literacy with health and wellness education. She has given workshops and lectures on bullying and scapegoating, typology and temperament, and care of the soul in schools in an era of increasing technology and standardization. A longtime student of dreams, the I Ching, and other symbolic languages, she is also an avid observer of collective processes in families, organizations, and culture. Her work "The Power of the Ancestors: The Family Unconscious as a Source of Wounding and Healing" explores the intergenerational transmission of complexes and trauma from family systems, Jungian, and African perspectives. Earlier in her career she worked as a columnist, reporter, and editor for various newspapers and magazines in the U.S., specializing in education, psychology, spirituality, and health.
