Ollom Art’s Internal Landscapes© Program was developed by Prismatic Productions’ Artistic Director, John Ollom to give every type of performer, from novice to professional, an environment to learn through a two-part philosophy: give the artist a sound basis for their work and encourage the true voice of the artist at all times.

The perfect companion reading Internal Landscapes – the Paperback and eBook
Internal Landscapes is the culmination of fourteen years of movement research, movement technique classes and personal introspection that have created the revolutionary methodology of Internal Landscapes. John Ollom’s practice is defined as archetypal movement that leads to art creation.
Many dancers, actors, performance artists and non-performers have come to work with John Ollom, the creator of the Internal Landscapes methodology and his company of Ollom Movement Artists. Peer into a book that not only educates but tells personal stories of unbelievable honesty. Issues of rape, homosexuality, and survival through trauma have been addressed in this methodology. Artists that have dared to have the courage to create art that is poignant and revelatory have found John Ollom’s practice to be the key to their process.
The print book is available online at JohnOllom.com
