The desire to grow and become better is ancient, innate. In comparison, the idea that you can actually design yourself seems a lot more recent.
Psychoanalysis can take up many years, and new treatments are much more focused on behavioural therapy or medication that yield quicker results. For Eunoia — ‘good will’ or ‘a healthy state of mind’ — Ivi van Keulen invites people to overcome painful experiences by repeatedly writing their personal goal on a long role of paper, in an act of self-design by Neuro-Linguistic Programming. In a live performance, Atlas Skin, she will take on other people’s traumas by having them transferred to her skin in writing.
If you wish to share your trauma and have it be part of the performance. You may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org titled ATLAS SKIN, containing your past trauma in 1 – 3 words.
Thank you for sharing.
