WHAT IF I’M IN CHARGE?
In this laboratory we are going to think and improvise. Think: what if each of us could choose how school is? How would classes be like? Would there be any classes? Then what would we do? How would teachers be like? Recess? Food? What would we learn? And how? And where, in what space? We are going to improvise, experiment what it would be like… we are going to make a proposal: we want a school like this!
The process is developed through games and exercises of body, voice, movement and thought, as a way to set up a new language about school’s physical, intellectual and emotional space, as well as its functioning, its advantages and its purposes.
