Empty Classroom

Drama is impactful and sometimes presents ambivalence that allows one to integrate multiple perspectives, to rehearse spontaneous actions, and to experiment different possibilities non-judgmentally. Through dramatic improvisation and embodied play, I have had playful, creative and transformative encounters that engage my injured inner child and my own dementors. 

The body keeps the traumatic score, and yet with every breath, step and transformation in drama and play we shed new light and hope into our body cells.
