Imagine Believe Work Together is a fascinating look at how individuals have worked together throughout history in much the same way as we still do today to create and maintain this amazing society that we enjoy.
Students are introduced to Florence Nightingale (aka the Lady with the Lamp), whose passion saved thousands of lives, and see that whilst every instrument she used, the uniform she wore and even her signature lamp have radically changed or gone altogether, her original ideas still save millions of lives every year.
With the help of volunteers, two Aesop’s fables prove that thinking can be more effective than strength and there are benefits to be gained by working together.
From the moment their mouths are attached trick Marionettes have input into their own design and creation. So before they perform, students gain an understanding of how these century old designs work and are made and how a good performer never gives away all their secrets. That would only spoil the surprise.
Imagine Believe Work Together shows how fun, play, creative thinking & improvisation can assist design and invention.
Fantastic theme of working together which was supported through the stories told. Very enjoyable and entertaining. Lots of fun!
