DETAILS Based on the work of David Diamond, Vancouver-based Theatre for Living sees community as a living organism in which the individuals and the collective are interconnected and part of the same. Through a variety of theatre activities, including movement and trust games, partner activities, and image theatre, we will explore the event themes. After each activity, there will be time to reflect and debrief. This workshop aims to be fun while at the same time offers a chance to explore deeper issues.
