This past weekend (Oct 10-12th) we had, once again, the great privilege to take part of the conference Performing the World in New York City. This 8th international conference brought together performance activists from 34 countries sharing new and old initiatives from all around the world that are using performance to change the world. Throughout the conference we explored the question "How Shall we Become?" through performances, workshops and presentations that showcased theatre, improvisation, dance, music and magic! In our workshop "in2listening: What Can Ensemble Improvisation Teach us About the Art of Listening?" we created groupness with simple ensemble building ideas and had a great turn out! We are very excited to have strengthened old friendships and built new ones. It was an amazing weekend filled with hope, laughter and performance.
