Louise and I saw "Take a Breath" at the Roundhouse on Saturday. Our friend Valerie Methot facilitated a group of people in a community theatre project. Each participant was asked to explore "what is important to you" and present it in a one-minute spot, using movement, music or spoken word. The show was woven together with movement pieces and bits of dialogue that made evident the level of collaboration and loving support that must have been at the heart of the process. Some of the performers were experienced, others not. They ranged in age from teenagers to seniors. It was beautiful and revealing and encouraging.

question: what's important to you?
