This workshop uses playground games and purposeless activities to ground participants in the fluctuation of an uncertain environment. Games like ‘freeze tag’ enable participants to physically practice momentary awareness. While purposeless activities like ‘stack/climb/drag’ encourage performers to play in that grey area between intention and unplanned outcome.
During the last hour, participants collaboratively create an impromptu performance. This activity, a physical orchestra of discordant sounds and collaborations, acts as a mode through which participants put to practice their heightened levels of awareness and audacity.
