$30 thru Oct 5/ $40 day of

This workshop led by Dr. Shepherd Siegel will examine three strands that illuminate the possibilities of disruptive play: one, the archetype of the Trickster who embodies playfulness, two, how the Western political world has dealt with the Trickster; and three, how disruptive play may illuminate a path back to a more playful society. He will share visions of how we can use non-competitive play to collapse power.. Dr. Siegel will define the differences between original, cultural and disruptive play. There are many prototypes and templates for a play-based society. What happens when the Trickster is liberated from having to address and mock power? 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.
