The March 19 Artwaves is a conversation about an abstract concept "inner self" as explained by theatre performer as well as Dell'Arte faculty member and MFA program alum James Peck. 

Not only that, he is co-teaching a workshop this Saturday, March 23, 1-8 p.m. at Synapsis Nova in Eureka. This workshop is not a theatre workshop but it incorporates ideas that are not new to people who train in theatre performance. The workshop is titled "Inner Strength Training" and it is being taught by Peck, his brother Stephen Peck, a mental health and wellbeing trainer, and Sarah Peters, also a Dell'Arte MFA alum who has taught Theater of the Oppressed at Humboldt State University. James Peck tells Artwaves' Wendy Butler that this workshop will focus participants on recognizing "the relationship between needs, resources and the strategies we use every day to get those needs met." Needs, resources and strategies are common words for people studying theatre as well, he says. And, don't worry, he adds, the workshop is not intended as a group psychoanalysis session. More information and registration for this workshop can be found on Facebook. And listen to this March 19 Artwaves interview in our KHSU Archives.
