We are at our best when we play. Our awareness peaks. Our egos diminish. Joy arises from the thrill and challenge of adapting to the changing conditions involved in imaginative play.
When faced with the desperation, disorientation, and stress that displacement causes in us; play is the first thing we leave behind, in lieu of survival. Yet, it is play that brings us back into the totality of ourselves and aids us in connecting and reforming communities.
It is for these reasons and realities that Spontaneous Village was created: to build a new community out of the people and pieces of communities that have been brought together by chance, providence, or happenstance.
Through the simple interactions involved in theater and other games, we are brought back into the order of looking after each other through play, through laughter, through supportive human interaction.
