Monsters Are Us (August 12-August 16)
Monsters come in all shapes and sizes. Some are pieced together from different animals (centaurs, chimeras); some are giants of land (Yeti), some of air (dragons) and some are giants of swamp, lake, and sea. This workshop asks kids if you were a monster, what kind would you be? How would you look? What would be your special powers? Through a combination of writing exercises, improv, workshops, and readings from modern and classic texts (Frankenstein, Dracula, and various mythologies: Greek, Norse, Native American, Caribbean, African, Asian), children will explore the differences and similarities of monsters in all cultures. They will see how mythologies have helped humans deal with conflict and interpret unusual natural phenomena.
