Millennials Immerse Themselves in InterPlay in Toronto
In March of 2015, InterPlay leaders Rehana Tejpar and Agnotti Cowie organized the first ever InterPlay Art and Social Change Weekend Untensive in Toronto, Canada.
Both leaders had participated in one of the summer Art & Social Change Programs in Oakland and Agnotti has recently been chosen to be the first Millennial Coordinator for InterPlay world-wide. Nine millennial artists, activists, educators, community organizers, healers, facilitators, and lifelong learners took part in the Toronto weekend.
“We made magic! People came with courage in the face of fear, trust in the face of distrust and openness in the face of cynicism. What unfolded was deep, beautiful connection.
“Whilst many participants attending had prior movement experience, it was noticed time and time again, the power of the InterPlay forms to bring us back to the body, to the moment, and trusting what comes. People shared that the InterPlay tools and forms—especially exformation, witnessing and the walkabout—were transformative practices to carry forward in their lives. What felt wonderful and affirming was the trust and compassion people shared, creating a space where it was safe enough to be vulnerable, to be ourselves. It was indeed, sacred.”
This was the launch of InterPlay in Toronto and the beginning of a bi-monthly playgroup on Sundays from 2:30–4 pm at DANZon Studio and Arts Centre (2480 Dundas St W.) For more information, please email Rehana.
