You’ve heard of group mind, but what about group hivemind? Early on in their relationship the members of PGraph decided to eschew permanent coaches or directors in favor of a self-directed ensemble. 

After 17+ years of non-stop commitment and a non-stop weekly show, the four members of Parallelogramophonograph have learned to work together as a highly-connected unit on and off stage.

For this 2-hour workshop, Kaci and Roy have picked their favorite exercises and tips for getting close and connected with your fellow players, your overall ensemble, and most surprisingly, yourself.
