This is a past event. Participants were delighted to discover a fun group of other people to play with, as well as two highly-skilled guides who helped them "relearn to be creative."

Generate, Create, Communicate: Using improvisation & play to unleash the story inside
facilitated by Matt and Toni Tabora-Roberts
Saturday, September 22, 2007
1 p.m.-5 p.m.
6 max, so RSVP quickly!

Get back to "school" by learning a new "language!" In a playful and supportive environment using theater exercises, movement and freewriting, "Generate, Create, Communicate" will help you work both individually and collaboratively to generate ideas and create interesting, dynamic stories. Gifted with both kindness and skill, Matt & Toni will create a safe place for you to listen to yourself, cultivate your curiosity, and trust your instincts. You will find yourself able to explore new territory and push beyond the predictable and expected. Artists of ALL disciplines and anyone who wants to have fun discovering story is welcome. The only requirement is an open mind!
