Disruptive Play: Tricking Power into Performing Acts of Love

  • East West Bookshop 324 Castro Street Mountain View, CA, 94041 United States (map)

Mischief-makers have always impacted society such as appearances made by the Trickster, hippies, and graffiti artists such as Banksy. Their disruptive play can offer a fresh perspective and hope for a more playful future. Dr. Shepherd Siegel will define the differences between original, cultural and disruptive play. You will gain a view of the historic effect of the Trickster and learn about play as related in mythology, folklore, art, politics, anthropology and popular culture. Learn how a genuine trickster liberates rather than binds us to a dystopian future so we can envision a more playful society. Dr. Siegel is a musician and earned his doctorate from UC Berkeley. He has over thirty publications including Career Ladders and Disruptive Play. Learn more
