Social Presencing Theatre (SPT) is a methodology, developed under the leadership of Arawana Hayashi, for understanding current reality and exploring emerging future possibilities. SPT can be practised at the level of the individual, group, organisation, and larger social systems. It is one of the most important and effective methods developed by the Presencing Institute, based at MIT, Boston, USA and has been used effectively for over ten years in business, government, and civil society settings, in places as varied as Brazil, Indonesia, China, Europe and the United States. This is not ‘theatre’ in the conventional sense but uses simple body postures and movements to dissolve limiting concepts, to communicate directly, to access intuition, and to make visible both current reality and the deeper – often invisible – leverage points for creating profound change.
