Collaborative Connections for Cultivating the Civic Actor: Harnessing the Interpersonal within Martial Arts and Physical Theater
Following a disinclination to draw direct links between the non-verbal teaching methods of the physical arts and the cultivation of civic identity, the project ventured into the nuances of interpersonal connection. Security and attunement were two core components necessary for grounding both the self and another while subsequently nurturing each person’s voice. A key area of study has been around reconnecting amidst disconnection. This development of a capacity for collaboratively derived connection is a foundational component of a civically-minded society.
