In this laboratory we illuminate language, uncover gesture and free the mind through our theatrical investigation. A ‘plug-in’ to creative action, an opportunity to reawakening and sharpen those places in ourselves that need realigning or perhaps rewiring back to what’s most original and true. A soulful surrender.

“Delivering one’s self back to the artistic nature of the body. Sculpting spirit into shape, writing soul into story, dancing mind into the wind and tracing the heart home.”-Lorca


Who we are: LORCA is dedicated to the creation of physical theatre both interactive and transformative.

Lorca was born and raised in Texas where she grew up in her father’s experimental theatre company Hip Pocket. A graduate of The University of North Carolina School of the Arts theatre conservatory moving before to New York City. Educated in both experimental and traditional theatre, she has blazed through productions from Off Broadway to fringe, as well as television and film.

Lorca followed her instincts to the unique directing vibration known as Gabrielle Roth and a 19 year creative collaboration bloomed. She was a Co-Founder and a Co-Director of 5RT, the experimental theatre wing of 5Rhythms, a place she has stepped into with her expansive Texan feet first collaborating on numerous original productions, workshops, and ritual theatre explorations. She is a Certified 5Rhythms® Teacher actively creating theatre internationally through a series of LIVE WIRE Ritual Theatre Labs.

Lorca is committed to scattering the seeds of this transformative process.

JOANNE is skilled at grounding, trac- king, and transforming the energy of a group. A natural catalyst, she leads with humour, kindness, clear intent, and a deep respect for the unique discovery process of each participant.
