Description: We will look at Shuntaro Tanikawa’s poem, Growth, as a way to jump start the flow of our chronological life moments of fear and courage. We will share our personal stories and create a timeline of our up against the wall moments and victories. We will use improvisation and connect with each other through mirrored movements and exploring secrets in a safe and nurturing environment, we will share our memories in “story nuggets” or “story-haiku” and empower ourselves through the spoken word. All levels welcome.
