Playing Games to Train the Creative Body:
performance strategies and improvisation techniques
Playing Games to Train the Creative Body is a workshop for everyone who wishes to stimulate their creative side. Working with movement and story-telling improvisation strategies, games and contemporary performance techniques, we’ll unleash our creative impulses.
Influenced by her work and training with Nina Martin and Lower Left’s Ensemble Thinking for Performing Improvisation, Ruth Zaporah’s Action Theatre™ and Keith Hennessy’s Activism Art, Meagan has developed trainings to encourage people to:
- Be as you as you can be
- Find your people
- Cultivate the third impulse, look for the oblique
- Magnify Joy
- Amplify Impact

DIY Interdisciplinary Solo Making
DIY Interdisciplinary Solo Making is for those who wish to take the work further and develop a performance piece. Incorporating the skills we’ve been working with in Playing Games to Train the Creative Body, each participant can develop their material for an informal showing at the end of the workshop. People are invited to come with an idea and or some material. This could be already developed and you want to go deeper or continue exploring or change tactics. It could also be an object of significance, a poem, song, piece of text, or an idea or memory close to your heart.
Meagan has created and performed 17 interdisciplinary solo's in her 22 years of professional practice and has developed a number of strategies to uncover the material that is always there waiting to be expressed.
Space is limited for this workshop in order to give one-on-one feedback.
Friday October 26 2 - 3:30 pm / 8 - 9:30 pm
Saturday October 27 1:30 - 4 pm / 4:45 - 7:15 pm

At the end of the weekend we’ll share our work with the community. Participants from Playing Games the Creative Body are welcome to share one of the exercises with the audience.
