Asha Maren-Hogan of Alderson during "Playshop" Blooms At Trillium By Ellen Broudy "The imagination is a potent form of magic," said Marjorie Goldman of Le Masque Theatre Ensemble, Alton, Virginia. She visited Lewis- burg March 31, and presented an afternoon-long "Playshop" in crea- tive theater. A series of movements and exer- cises lead participants to form a "creative bubble" in which she or he felt free to imagine and act out re- sponses to a variety of situations, looking for ideas for stories. The walls of The Studio had been draped with an array of colorful cos- tumes, masks, props, and musical instruments. Participants chose clothes and objects to transform themselves into characters. The characters became the inspiration for stories which were acted out as they were told. Some- times the characters told their own stories. Sometimes the stories and musical accompaniment were pro- vided by other members of the group. When the day was over, each participant had learned to look for the potential for entertainment in the stories of their daily lives or the stories of their wildest imaginings. Ms Goldman presented the "Playshop" with the assistance of her son Moriah, who operated video and sound equipment, and her daughter Shandoah who joined in the exercises and performances. Their visit to Lewisburg was spon- sored by The Trillium Collective, Ltd., a group seeking non-profit status and devoted to providing per- formance opportunities to the com- munity. an In Priscilla M Identical twins. People have al- ways been fascinated by them. Even perfect strangers often come up to parents of twins and ask, "How can you tell them apart?"~ When people see twins who are dressed exactly alike they usually stop and look. The matter of dress- ing twins alike or differently is a sub- ject of interest and some contro- versy. It raises many questions. For example: If twins are dressed exactly alike during their early years, doesn't this encourage people to remark on how "cute" they look and lead to a let- down when the twins are older and no longer "cute?" If twins are dressed differently, doesn't this go against their natural tendency to like the same things and do the same things? If they are dressed alike and pre- sented to the world as a "twosome," what will happen to them in later years when they are expected to operate as individuals and go their separate ways? What is your opinion on this sub- ject? If you are an identical twin, or if you know some identical twins, or if you just have an opinion about this, I would like to hear what you have to say. I guess you can gather that I lean toward dressing twins differ- ently to encourage their develop- Recycling Center ment as individuals.
