At 3pm Erica Magrey and Jennifer Sullivan will present some independent and collaborative work involving performance, karaoke, costuming, music videos, and feelings. We might be able to steal some of their performance skills and take em to the classroom. Afterwards, we'll talk shop-- what are Jen and Erica doing to engage people in their performances that educators can absorb and experiment with? What do we know as teachers that could inform the way they integrate their art into the public realm?
At 4pm BUSINESS.
We've got a grocery list.
