Performing the World 2012
From October 4-7 we attended the 7th Performing the World Conference in NYC. The conference brought together 450+ artists, activists, health providers and revolutionary therapists from over 37 different countries that use performance for human development and community building. We were surrounded by so much positive energy, joy and great ideas. It was so inspiring to see all the ways that people are using performance, play and improvisation to develop and do small and big things to change and save the world. We attended many workshops led by people from around the world on writing, humor, play and saw programs using performance in therapy in New York City, Nigeria and Juarez, Mexico. We gave a workshop titled: "in2 Community Building! - An Interdisciplinary Improvisation Workshop” we got great feedback and it was a great first experience in sharing our work with an international audience.
