||mythical story, organisational culture, surplus reality
||Whether as a producer, auxiliary or protagonist I love surplus reality and the metaphorical elements in psychodramas. I have been a romping dog in a drama and any number of vines, rocks and broken axe handles. I feel enlivened and relish this in others. These elements may be, and often are, expanded into a whole story, one that has an integrity to the protagonist and the group. There is a co-creation at work as auxiliaries experience the freedom of being something that isn't everyday, whether a personified rock or the warrior goddess Sekhmet. A story has a narrative and logic that drives it forward carrying the drama. Sometimes these stories are ordinary 'small' stories, sometimes they are world-encompassing mythic tales; stories that mirror human nature, our collective histories and how things are the way they are. They go to the core of meaning and illuminate it.
