Play and Develop Across the Lifespan
Free. All are welcome.
Play is critical for doing things we don’t know how to do, and developmental for people and groups of ALL ages! It helps us to break out of roles, push the boundaries of what’s possible, and create things together which are otherwise unimaginable.
Play and Develop Across the Lifespan will be a fun workshop that offers cutting edge tools from theatre, improvisation, art and music. Join us and discover how to:
- Support mundane creativity
- Build ensembles everywhere
- Learn to remix — connect all kinds of elements together to create something new.
- Perform conversation
We will build a playground for philosophical, musical, and poetic exploration. And have lot of fun! We will play with a) Improv comedy which has a set of tenets and activities that are designed to help people break out of roles, work together to support risk taking, and be weird without humiliation. b) Remix: an activity that helps adults to use everything including already written stories, poems, cultural experiences, music, as well as unique ideas, to create collective creations thus giving the participants the experience of being creators. c) Performed conversation: using the tools of improv and remix to create playful conversations that allow people to not be stopped by differences, disagreements or assumptions.
