Mentoring is a process between mentor and mentee that could work well in a local setting with contact hours structured over a predetermined period. It also offers powerful results on an international scale with regular meetings on Skype, as needed

Mentoring mainly entails the accommodation of a biographical process. The mentee reaches a point in development where certain psychological content has to be given form. In the cases thus far performance is chosen as the medium with which a mentee explores themes mostly of biographical content. By working over a period of months to a year, a thorough excavation of material and its representation as performance runs alongside vital transformative processes in the larger life context. The ultimate event of staging the work forms a culmination of many work sessions and often results in the final transformative effect, as performance, with an invited or paying audience, whether or not as part of a festival. This finally ends a phase, an alchemical shift of energy and form. In many instances the process and performance work is being written up, documented with videos and stills as manifesto of a rite of passage for the post-modern individual for whom the spirit, senses and body are all well integrated as a life event.
