Last year I was commissioned to write a script for MicheLee Puppets. Tracey wanted to inspire girls to work in the science fields, give themt he tools to resist social pressure to drop out of science, and help them understand how the sciences canbe a helping field. Ina ddition, we wantd to have science experiments and demonstrations connected with a touching story.
I developed three completely different ideas, and this is the story we settled on for production.
“Mason Currey, after studying the habits of nearly 200 of the world’s most prolific inventors and innovators over the ages, found that the single common habit of these great inventors and innovators was walking. As Currey reports, Charles Dickens famously took 3-hour walks every afternoon—and what he observed on them fed directly into his writing.”
Amy Cuddy is a Social psychologist associated with Harvard Business School. Her research supports the idea that holding expansive body postures increase feelings of power.
I am collaborating with Tisse Mallon and the Elar Institute to bring my Mindful Momentum course to Orlando, FL. I would love to see you there!
I've added pictures from my most recent show "CREATION: Births of Mythlogy," performed at Valencia College. It closed yestrday. I'm incredibly proud of my students. I directed the design, but my students truly did the hard work perfecting the designs for the puppets, incorporating their unique artistry in everything the built. I was much more of a guide than a dictator :-)
