What’s in a box? That was the inspirational starting point for Gr 3 – 5 students in the Stars on Stage ECA.
Starting with simple play and imagination that took us out of the box, students went deeper to explore their own movement and message in order to articulate meaning to the audience.
From special memories, to improvisation based on Anne Bogart’s viewpoints, to writing poetry and creating percussion rhythms, our artists worked collaboratively to devise a short performance based on their experience.
These students learned to work together as an ensemble, supporting each other in taking risks as they tried new things each session. This creative connection and experience underscores the power of the arts and the life lessons learned.
