Improvisational expressive arts offer the practice of aiming at perfection
In Liberation Arts Learning:
Educators create learning opportunities by extending the field of the learner's learning domain into the material plane.
Learners grow as independent thinkers and empathic participants in community.
We are both Teacher and Learner at the same time.
This model is sourced from Paulo Freire's concept of Authentic Education in his work Pedagogy of the Oppressed.
Learning in Community
Learning that happens in the presence and with the participation of the group is powerful. Our structure for group improv and warrior dances are adapted from South American Quilombos resistance culture.
Liberation arts is a practice to balance
The [freedom to self-direct ones own life] balanced with [behaving for the welfare of one's community].
In the time of music self reflective learning networks with your motivations, flight-fight- freeze and architype systems. It goes beneath the surface of thoughts, words, and action. The balanced is experienced in the material world and grasp deep we move more together.
Using improvisational theater (stories using of creative movements, songs, and musical sounds) to get deeper understanding of foundational influences, the macro-social context, of general ideology, personal choice and personal responsibility around the consequences of any action, object, process, experience, or dynamic.
All this work is occurring but in the eyes of the learners they are having the most fun as directors and actors in a world of their own creation
