SILVA, Jessé Guimarães da. Happenings and here and now - dialogues between Gestalt approach and Living Theatre. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.1, pp. 98-109. ISSN 1809-6867.

The present article aims to propose a reflection on the concepts involved in the experience here and now treated by the Gestalt approach. To do so, based on the avant-garde proposal of Living Theater, a group founded by Julien Beck and Judith Molina in 1947, such a debate will have as an analytical device the theatrical performance methodology called happening. From a look at the experience of the theater group and the resumption of bibliographic references that address the definition and characteristics of this concept, the proposal is to assume experience here and now in its continuous processuality marked by immediate and unique human experiences. From this point of view, there is a significant relevance of certain terms, such as contact, experience, spontaneity and improvisation in dealing with the present experience.

Keywords : Gestalt approach; Happening; Here and Now; Experience; Improvisation; Spontaneity.
