“ ‘‘‘‘‘‘‘ ˮ is a workshop / training resulting in a 14 hour performance, which itself is a coalescence and practical demonstration of the techniques and strategies developed during the preceding days, “ ‘‘‘‘‘‘‘ ˮ has been developed over the last 7 years, and is the culmination of roughly 35 years active research, mistake making, experiment and application of and into techniques and practices of development over a wide range of human endeavor by Andrew M.Mckenzie, the founder member of The Hafler Trio and inventor of the concept of ‘Complemation’.
A training, a performance, a retreat and an uprecedented opportunity to carry out deep work on the Self (and all that might mean!), using the most potent of metaphors: The Kitchen. We are presently engaged with finding locations and situations where these things can manifest fully. Will you help us in this endeavour? of course you will!
Have you ever been stuck?
Have you ever reached an impassé in your creative life,
and wished that you could see a way out of that particular cul-de-sac?
Have you ever wanted to talk seriously about mad stuff but nobody you knew could handle it?
Have you ever wanted to talk about creative experience but didn't know who to approach?
Have you ever wanted to get feedback and another perspective from someone that has "been there?"
of course you have!
A service, being that of one-on-one counseling is shortly to be available through Simply Superior, where anyone with a burning question, a stuck situation or just needing a new perspective can take advantage of Andrew M.McKenzie's 35+ years of actual, practical experience with dealing with creative matters... and a great deal of that which pertains to them.
Yes, a mailing list where questions can be posed, and who knows? Possibly answered. Not only this, but by people who might actually know what they are talking about. Or not. Everything comes to those who wait.
Why? What? How? Who? What if?
Indeed, a 'podcast' where Complemation Conversations are available for edification, confusion, clarification, pondering, illumination and massive digression (or not) with people of all shapes, sizes, beliefs, talents, opinions and hair colours. Ongoing, and going on and on, demonstration - if it were needed - that the best laid plans of mice and men gan aft to talking. Explanations there may not be, but investigations there most surely and definitely will be, of benefit to all but the fuzziest of gentle heads.
Simply Superior is at present seeking Pro-Active Agents for the investigation and research, booking and execution of arrangements for Simply Superior events and activities on a generous commission basis. The 'pro' part of this cannot be stressed enough, and this means that this is a unique opportunity to be financially rewarded for real, creative application and expression of ideas, strategies and methods that benefit all.
In addition to payment on a commission basis for the successful applicant(s), we are also offering a handsome fee for the procurement of the Agent(s) themself/selves. This means: when you find us an Agent, and that relationship becomes an actuality, we will pay you for this. Oh yes we will!
The successful applicants will have self-motivation as a prerequisite, as well as excellent communication skills, insight into practical application of techniques, perspectives and approaches from any discipline to any other, or a willingness to learn or further investigate this, and a willingness to be open to the very real possibilities that exist within this position.
Close liaison will be required with Simply Superior itself, although the hallmark of the actions we are inviting is compassionate autonomy.
Everything You Know is Wrong was an unprecedented opportunity to experience the research of The Hafler Trio’s Andrew M. McKenzie and his theory and practice of Complemation during his Feb/March 2015 London residency.
The workshop is over, but the original announcement can still be read. here.
Reading material that accompanied the sessions is also available.
