about the project.
Saya Woofalk began the workshop by asking the kids to bring in one object and think of an emotion they would like express through performance. The objects became catalysts for the kids’ whimsical imaginations and with the help of fabric and paper, were transformed into performance props. Under Saya’s direction and documentation, the narrative generated naturally from the kids. At opening night of the exhibition, the kids reenacted the performance, which was shown on a monitor.
“When I worked with students of More Art we turned their classroom into a laboratory for collaborative creative group expression. We took everyday materials and turned them into repositories for their emotions and stories. It was a unique experience.”
