learning to listen

Lars Schmidt is a multidisciplinary artist and a builder of bridges at the margins of art and ecological thinking.
He immersed himself deeply into the realm of the body-mind and its natural environment by studying and exploring such fields as ecology and indigenous cultures, psychology and somatics, artforms like acting, dance and improvisation, as well as eastern philosophies.
He has lived and worked on organic farms for several years and knows the life of mountain shepherds as well as the bustling of metropoles like New York, Paris, Buenos Aires or Berlin.
He has been working internationally as actor for film, television and theater; as director and visual artist, before focussing on post modern dance forms, the approach of contemplative arts, and wildlife conservation/restoration projects.
He also holds a Diploma of Applied Permaculture Design.
Lars works as artist, as teacher and facilitator.
He is a practitioner of Zazen since many years and is currently based in the norwegian mountains.
