Latta, Tim Lattawork/Motion 360 Life Skills- Other,
Performing Arts- Clowning,
Performing Arts- Dance
Is it theater? Is it dance? Is it circus? It’s all of these and more. It’s a performance for now- a new way of looking at creative thinking and how we can use it in our daily lives- in schoolwork, interactions with peers, building self esteem, confidence and tolerance. Everything and everyone around us has a story to tell and the potential to teach us something. In Motion 360, Tim Latta (former Pilobolus, Momix, Faustwork) demonstrates how we can, literally, stumble over everyday objects to unlock our creativity and help us discover what those stories can be. He creates dance/theatre pieces using objects that range from the ordinary (rollerblades and chairs) to the extraordinary (stilts, masks and milk cans!). While entertaining the audience, Mr. Latta is also teaching a whole new process of exploration. We learn that everything in the world around us can be used as a tool for creative problem solving. This process can be used in a classroom, a workplace and throughout our lives. Motion360 will leave audiences saying, “I can”. “Tim’s commitment to teaching and nurturing creativity in young people is obvious and infectious.” (All ages)
