Subject: Performing the World
To whom it may interest,
I am writing to invite you to be a part of - together with friends and
colleagues from around the world - a "cross-disciplinary happening"
known as "Performing the World: Communication, Improvisation and
Societal Practice," a conference being held October 12-14, 2001 in
Montauk, New York.
Performing the World will bring together scholars, therapists, health
and helping professionals, educators, business professionals, community
builders, performers, artists - and the irrepressibly curious -to learn
from each other and create new horizons of possibility. Conversations,
panels, workshops and performances will explore the rich potential of
performance for personal and social change.
