How to Relax

Get Tickets

Combining dance, experimental performance art, and self-help, How to Relax asks what it means to undergo a personal transformation in the company of others. Using an obscure self-help book from the 80’s as an entry point into participation, seemingly simple instructions – or “psychotechniques” – become tools to generate a performance related to the authentic transformations that the author promises to deliver.

How to Relax is part of a double bill with Dolphin.
