In it’s inaugural season, B4 the Other Creations is reaching communities all over the world with it’s playfully innovative educational methods. On our way to becoming a 501c3 Non Profit and rippling into the world. These methods incorporate Physical Theatre pedagogy, Ensemble Devising Techniques, Community Building skills, and Effort filled childs play which targets old patterns and exhausted habitual ways of creating.
Our playful process is a breaking of societal conditioning in order to get back to our hearts in every system life puts us in. Offering people a look into their professional and personal lives with tools to reawaken courage, inspiration, and change for themselves and their community. Yes, we are facilitating the process of creation (mostly theater) but what comes out of it is a deep understanding of listening, communication, equality, passion, conscious choice making, emotional intelligence, community building, and leadership.
In 2019, B4 will also be producing the World Premiere of "Being For the Other"... a deep dive into personal and community effort. This production will incorporate some of the essential exercises that B4 uses in it's educational workshops and multi-week residencies.
B4 is rooted in The Berkshires of Massachusetts but travel across the United States, Europe, and Asia for educational residencies, professional development, and original performances. So far this year B4 has traveled to Indonesia, Taiwan, Massachusetts, Vermont and Utah to teach and create.
