Bridging the "Age Friendly" community of Sarasota with Carrie Mills and her VPA program at Booker Middle School
We developed a powerful inter-generational education outreach program that gives 2 groups a needed, larger voice in the world. Middle school children and adults aged 60+ often feel lonely and lost. The Bridge brings these groups together to share their stories, mentor each other and build positive outlooks and relationships. The program finishes with a final performance which for some is the most rewarding aspect as they now relate to friends, family, and the community in a variety of monologues that remind that there are more commonalities than differences between the 2 generations.
O SOLO ME O
A solo theatre development workshop for Booker High School Juniors in the Visual and Performing Arts program
Ann Morrison and Blake Walton bring their solo performance workshop “SoloSynergy” to Sunny D Smith’s level III theatre students as a means to finding self-expression in writing and performing a personal story. Taking many forms including performance art, dance and movement, monologue, stand-up, fictional narrative, and cabaret, the 20-24 students write autobiographical pieces or a fictionalized aspect of themselves and some write something for another student to perform. Almost all the pieces are directed by a fellow student and all are presented in a final performance with an audience.
