I + We is an experimental and participatory political movement workshop. Borrowing techniques from dance, social sculpture, and new games, the structured hour and-a-half experience explores collective identity, play, and movement. Sign-up and participate in a workshops that will include “floor work” and “play apparatuses;” slides, ladders, masks, and restrictive toys. Sociologist Alberto Melucci suggests that in today’s alienated culture people find deep meaning and power through group identities that emerge through political social movements. I & We was first hosted by the Elizabeth Foundation in NYC, June-July 2013, with support by A Blade Of Grass
