Storytelling and Theater Lab / Spring 2011

NOMAD LAB's Storytelling and Theater Lab, led by writer and performer Sonal Malkani, worked with the youth to imagine character and stories inspired by people and experiences in their own lives. Several sessions were also facilitated by a remarkable group of CalArts Theater School student actors. With them we played many theater games that allowed us to feel confident and comfortable in our own skins and as a group of creative individuals. We got to play a lot!!!  We also learned how to visualize a story or recall a particular experience with vivid detail. These were all ways in which we entered our writing process. Towards the end of the semester, students published their finished stories, and they were shared at our neighborhood's community festival.
