A wise person once said, “Life is way too serious to take too seriously.” Humor allows us to take a step back from a particular situation, see the habits or our mind, and recognize our shared humanity. The session will include improvisation, movement, meditation, reflection, and sharing (and funny faces). Lunch is provided. Please note: This is not a performance. About the facilitator: Bob Klyce studied drama in NYC, and has been acting most of his life. A PhD candidate at the University of Toronto in Philosophy and Theology, he enjoys exploring ways to transpose his academic interests into experimental theatre (he is also a member of Our Own Voice Theatre Troupe) and creative writing. Bob also has a background in science, especially zoology, and is passionate about wildlife and habitat ecology and conservation. Married for 26 years, he and his wife, Christina, have three sons. Thank you to Tennessee Arts Commission, Memphis Medical District Collaborative, and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center for making this program possible. Playback Memphis relies on the support for individuals and organizations to bring its work into the community. Please consider making a donation so more people in our city can enhance their well-being and resiliency through Playback's unique story-sharing practice.
