We reveal the links between trance induction techniques, body enhancement practices, and the shamanistic rituals of the North American Kickapoo tribe. Why not make-believe we really can access your unconscious mind and transform your life? (Because, after-all, perhaps we can.)

Learners at St Johns College will be writing and participating in a performance of spoken word, movement and music inspired by things important to them. With Kate Tempest being the guest director of the Brighton Festival this year we decided to take this into consideration and thought it would be a good time to try something a little bit different that will also incorporate more learners - those who like to write as well as perform. We are looking at the genres of Hip-Hop, spoken word and dance, and will be utilising technology with our exciting new immersive theatre.
