Vision 21 Summer School

The Sherman Theatre hosted the first Vision 21 drama and dance summer school last week. Cariad joined Morgan Thomas and Tamsin Griffiths in co-creating a moving performance that incorporated drawing, acting, puppetry and dance. We revisited Somantics as a method of engaging the group, working at times with individuals but, wherever appropriate, using the interface to tease out some of the narratives emerging though the different activities. We also modified some of the early Somability prototypes as a backdrop for actors as they performed their scenes. Everyone had a lot of fun; by the end of the week the group were confident in improvising and sharing their creations, openly inviting each other to join in. There was a real buzz of excitement for the showback
