New Zealand SummerPlay 2019
Kia Ora from NZ/Aotearoa!
What a joyous SummerPlay we had in Christchurch on the 26 & 27 January 2019.
Our cosy group of twelve enjoyed some deeply enriching connections. I was delighted to be co-facilitating with Kate Barnett, who joined us from Wellington for the first time. Kate graciously and inventively led us through some familiar forms in a fresh way, as well as easing us into ventures through newer playfields. On Day Two we wowed ourselves with creating surprising stories in a poetic, at times melodic, form. Hilarious and moving! Many thanks to Kate, who stepped into our InterPlay Christchurch community with warmth and generosity.
And from Kate: many thanks to Belinda, for the innovative integrity of playmaking-leading, and her incredible commitment to community building! I revelled in the opportunity to connect with such open and willing, courageous and whole-hearted players. Deep gratitude to all of you!
