Karl Frost (Nevada City, California, USA) has been directed experimental theater and interactive performance events rooted in somatic psychology since the 80s.  He directs Body Research Physical Theater (www.bodyresearch.org), whose performance works explore human agency, experienced sense of meaning, and place in society, environment and politics. He has also been teaching contact improvisation for almost 30 years and has taught in over 24 countries. He has developed a dynamic approach to contact improvisation based in release technique, the internal martial arts, and the trauma theory of Peter Levine, the Passive Sequencing technique.  He is also currently completing his PhD in Human Ecology at UC Davis, where he uses multiple methods to explore the interrelationships amongst physical practice and human altruism. As part of this research, he is working on a documentary film about the interlocking issues of First Nations sovereignty, environmental protection, and the fights against oil and gas development in northern British Columbia, Canada.
