When we fight for social justice, the first obstacle might be the police—the cop in the street, armed with weapons and the authority of the state. But what stands in our way in instances of personal justice? When we want to do what’s right but don’t act upon those desires, the only cops that thwart us are the ones in our own heads. Starting with group games and theatrical exercises, this workshop physically disarms our mental cops in order to put principles of personal and social justice into action.

THE RAINBOW OF DESIRE
A one-day workshop
led by Morgan Andrews
at the Whole Shebang 
1813 S. 11th Street
Tuition: $25-75, sliding scale
Click here to pre-register

Images, sounds, movement and words are the building blocks for this workshop about creating the world as we want it, with better schools, healthier workplaces, stronger relationships and whatever else we need. But when desires conflict, these goals don’t come easy and might even get muddled. This session builds from group games to theatrical simulations that put our desires in the spotlight where we can see their true colors. Then we’ll figure out whether each one is helpful, harmful, or a little of both.
