When I'm imagining possibilities I love to play the Pass the Energy game. I use my eyes and head to get the energy to someone I choose. I do this in a way that gets out the emotions that I am feeling inside.
My favourite part of drama is the exercise Chair and Tables. During that exercise, we imagine any sadness, anger, or frustration we are feeling as chairs that we are holding above our heads. Then we throw it away. Throwing away my troubles away like that makes me feel happier and lighter.
When we create stories, I like to play the hero. Every time I play the hero, I reveal something about myself. We are all heroes when we act, and we all feel connected.
I found it heartwarming to be able to see all these people, who are considered by many to be non-verbal, interacting and supporting each other and building connection through drama activities like the energy passing game.
I did not know what to expect when I started working with at Imagining Possibilities, but I was surprised by the friendly workshop participants and staff. The group relies on teamwork for every activity, which builds a sense of community.
