2015 Once Upon This Volcano & Bad Birthday - Klukwan, Alaska
Sarah worked with students in Klukwan to create and tell stories through movement, text, and performance. Sarah led students in theatre and movement exercises to develop their kinesthetic and ensemble skills. These activities sparked ideas for stories, and Sarah led each group of students to work together to create one collective story per class. The stories were verbalized, drawn, and written as text. Students developed movements to illustrate the stories, and performed 'Once Upon This Volcano' and 'Bad Birthday' for an audience of community members Sept 25, 2015.
This project was sponsored by the Alaska State Arts Council and Chatham School District through the Artists in Schools program.
