Playshop: Discovering Who We Are Through Having a Little Fun
Looking into childlike play and how it relates adults in both their personal and professional lives. Seeing into the positive and negative connotations play has in our world today. Talking about the final project, a fifteen-minute theatrical performance focusing on the core topics of play, community, and alter-egos. The fictitious crew of Blush Corp uses the construct of a workshop to create an interactive environment with the audience to teach how to come up with villainous plans. The audience is taught the usefulness of childish play and the safe environment it creates using brainstorming, object play, and role-play with the audience creating a bond with the audience. Finally looking into the role Jungian archetypes have with alter-egos. How the Shadow side assists in self-discovery within play and how adults after the experience can use their alter-egos to grow on a personal level.
