Anti-Authoritarian film AND workshop Monday August 7th!!!!
hey folks. we have a roving revolutionary come to laughing horse books soon with a film and workshop involving authoritarianism and its effect upon human beings.
With difficulty walking, and half-blinded from torture by
theBrazilian military dictatorship, 79 year-old Roberto Freire
continues to develop somatherapy, completing his life's work.
Incorporating the ideas of Wilhelm Reich, the politics of anarchism,
and the culture of capoeira angola, Soma is used by therapists organized in anarchist collectives to fight the psychological effects of authoritarianism.
Nick Cooper travelled to Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Bahia, and São
Paulo to find the exercises, principles, voices, and movement of
somatherapy. more info: somadocumentary.com
and a workshop:
Lao-Tsu, the author of the Tao Te Ching and Subcomandante Marcos, of
the Zapatistas both talk about the power of water -- seemingly weaker,
but ultimately stronger than the more familiar power of swords. To
struggle against oppression in ways that don't create other
oppressions, we will explore the anti-fascist non-hierarchical
currents in the Zapatista movement.
