The Poetry of Play

Project Description

The Poetry of Play (Suggestion, play, flow)

When we play, many times we get lost in giving and receiving sensations, but what about the journey, the poetry? What about the narrative? Let’s bring our play to the next level, creating dialogue, understanding desires, tuning our listening and play with subjects instead of objects. Bringing some of the tools I’ve learned in “El Teatro de los Sentidos” will help us to see the beauty of play and the difference between giving sensations and creating poetry.
