Collaborative Role-Playing Performance: glazed ceramic figurines; dice; cards; paper maps

“I like games a lot! To me, games and play can create worlds of new possibilities, where our imaginations have the space to flourish. I'm especially fond of role-playing games, as I enjoy watching how people adopt different personas and ways of thinking/ acting, and try to respond to situations in different ways. Role-playing games helped me through some very difficult periods of my life; the different worlds and personas I imagined and assumed helped me to understand my own experiences and explore other perspectives. Thus, it's my hope that games can help us develop our imaginations and help us empathize more deeply with others, as we behold other worlds and expand our horizons. I'm very excited for this opportunity to work with the Substation, to bring some of this playful spirit, into the Home of the Arts!”
