Your Creative Brain at Play

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Robert and Deb are currently collaborating in research focusing on neuroscience and the function of creative play. We will be exploring how new discoveries in neuroscience can be applied in the context of acting, directing and theatre education. Workshop participants will examine and play traditional theatre games and exercises - and then create new and refashion old games together as we add in information regarding brain function and creativity.

All participants will receive published credit as facilitators and co-creators – a fun, interactive, playful workshop that’s also excellent for your resume!
