Dzieci (djyeh-chee) is an international experimental theatre ensemble dedicated to a search for the “sacred” through the medium of theatre. On January 21st they will host "Maraton", an annual 24 hour total immersion into ritual creation. After decades of investigation and practice, company director Matt Mitler, has developed a methodology that that transcends typical human barriers, exploring realms both primal and spiritual, while forsaking the common masks of habit and personality. From studies in experimental theatre with Jerzy Grotowski, and psychology with Carl Rogers, and an intensive spiritual training, Mr. Mitler and his company eliminate language, facilitating through direct transmission to the core of being. The workshop itself is non-verbal and flows in accordance with the nature of the participants.

For those participants, the workshop is a chance to share intimately with the company’s practice, while exploring the essence of Sacred Theatre. Though theatre is the means for exploration and creation, a theatrical background is not required.
