Impossible Things in Oakland – Aug. 7, 2012

Violet will perform excerpts from “Impossible Things” as the kick-off performance for the Integrated Learning Summer Institute presented by the Alameda County Office of Education at the the Chabot Space and Science Center on August 7, 2012.  The performance will be part of the first plenary of the conference which will also include presentations by Shakti Butler of World Trust and  Janice Jackson of Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education.

The conference includes three days of dynamic speakers, workshops and leading edge practices  for K-12 teachers, administrators, content-specialists and teaching artists.  To attend the conference, visit the registration site.

Impossible Things
Violet Juno’s new performance is about teaching and learning the arts in a range of settings including a community center, public school, museum, reservation school, half-way house, migrant school, and university.  This performance surfaces the amazing, hilarious, thought-provoking, poignant and seemingly impossible things that happen in the classroom during the creative process.  But more than that, the performance asks the question: “How can we comprehend the deep past of our history and understand our present moment together in order to apprehend our collective future?”

The first half of the full-length performance “Impossible Things” premiered at The Marsh in Berkeley, CA as part of Tell It On Tuesday in May, 2011.
