IN Founder's Thoughts

On Imagination, Tour Cancellations and Failure

“ Imagination is a kind of mental time-travel ” – Thomas Suddendorf, University of Queensland

To quote the famous philosopher, Yogi Berra, “ It is deja vu all over again ”. For the second holiday season in a row, the second new year, we are back to lockdowns, restrictions, hospitals struggling to provide services and a future that feels bleak.

When things start feeling grim, I try imagining alternatives. No wonder that while looking for something interesting to read, my eyes locked in on an essay, Homos Imaginatus . The article explained that the one mental capacity that might truly separate us from other species, “… isn’t exactly a skill at all, but more a quality of mind. We should perhaps have called ourselves instead Homo imaginatus: it could be imagination that makes us human. The more we understand about the minds of other animals, and the more we try (and fail) to build machines that can ‘think’ like us, the clearer it becomes that imagination is a candidate for our most valuable and most distinctive attribute. ”

“ You must be disheartened ” he said. “ Why ”, I asked. “ With what is going on, delaying and cancelling trips you have been planning for so long. ” “ No, I just move on. I imagine that sooner or later better times are coming. ”

Though I wasn’t aware of it at the time, the article on imagination explained my instinctive reaction, “ A mind that can conceive of possibilities beyond its own experience can prepare for the unexpected; better to over anticipate than to be surprised. ” As I write this, our company has just cancelled yet another trip. “ The task of a mind,” wrote the French poet Paul Valéry, “ is to produce the future.”  And so, we plan. And the future is ours to imagine and create.

That is not to say that I don’t feel anything when we cancel a tour. The Austrian poet, Rainer Maria Rilke, who I quoted in the final blog of the inaugural South American Epic wrote: “ Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final. ”

But cancelling a tour is also not a failure. Samuel West, the curator of the Museum of Failure, is quoted in a CBC Ideas program on failure, “. .. it’s not so horrible to fail if you’re failing because you’re trying something new. I think a lot of it is because we want something genuine. We want something uncurated, ” he said. “ And, because failure is something that most people and most companies usually hide, putting failure up on a pedestal and shining a spotlight on it offers that sense of ‘this is real.’ ”

There you have it. We at TDA imagine, then plan, then execute the plan. Sometimes it doesn’t work. Sometimes it ‘fails’ because we forget to take something into account, sometimes because of geopolitics and sometimes because of externalities beyond anyone’s control, like, say, a pandemic. It is all ‘uncurated and very real’.

imagination tour 2022

On our inaugural South American cycling adventure, a participant on the tour asked me:

“ Henry, do you know why your company is successful pulling off these crazy bicycle expeditions one after another when other companies don’t even attempt them? ” “ No ”, I responded “ Because you are not afraid to fail .”

Well, he was wrong. It is because failure is never a failure. Failure is just another word. To quote Samuel Becket, “ Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better ”. As the writer of  Homos Imaginatus, Philip Ball, writes, “ Imagination is the essence of humankind. It’s what our brains do, and in large part it may be what they are for. ” We at TDA use our imagination a lot and I hope that during these challenging times, you too can imagine a better future.

So stay tuned for our future tours. Those planned for 2022 and beyond can be found on our calendar pag e.

Imagination Stage - Theatre for Change

10 Seconds Written by Miriam Gonzales Directed by LeeAnét Noble

In a world where deeply rooted biases and misperceptions easily take hold, life can often feel unnerving—and can change for better or worse in a blink of an eye, depending on how we see each other. In this play, we see through the eyes of Washington, DC high school students Ray and Jimi, who navigate their young adult worlds and what it means to be young black men in the city.  Ray tells the story of a day that he and Jimi will never forget, sharing not only their perspectives, but also the views of the police they encounter. Imagination Stage commissioned playwright Miriam Gonzales to write this play, which is part of its Theatre for Change programming and based on two years of workshops with DC police officers and young people ages 12-18.

Breakout Session #1

Attendees will select from one of three Breakout Sessions offered during the block.

Speak Up, Act Out and Break Out with Christopher Totten, Courtney J. Boddie, & ChelseaDee Harrison

In what ways can we authentically diversify organizational programming to amplify young people’s voices? What does it mean to activate social justice in programming through theater-based practices? These questions and more lie at the heart of this session inspired by the New Victory’s recent partnership with The Lillys and The 24 Hour Plays — Speak Up, Act Out: Inspired by The Lorraine Hansberry Initiative —aimed at encouraging young students to become playwrights, editors and co-directors. Inspired by the art and activism of playwright Lorraine Hansberry, student writers submitted original monologues about social topics that were important to them and the lives of young people. Each student then co-directed their piece with a professional director and professional actor. This session will share more about the model itself and in what ways it is a departure from New Victory’s foundational Education programming to encourage participants to explore ways of expanding their own programming and center young people’s voices using TYA and theater-based practices. Participants will have time to explore what it means to move beyond the proverbial box. They will brainstorm and conceptualize meaningful new ways to leverage internal skill sets, consider new partnerships, root creative ventures in an organization’s core values and create myriad pathways to new community-centered programming that inspires a new generation of young artists.

New Directions for Digital Theatre Post-COVID (Imagination Stage Host Breakout Session) with Janet Stanford, David Sabel, & Helen Tovey

The pandemic challenged our young audiences in their social/emotional development and prompted theatre companies to utilize digital media in new ways in order to reach and engage them during lockdown. What are the takeaways from the field’s experimentation? Is there an opportunity to engage neglected audiences in rural and under-served parts of the country through digital means, and is there a demand for digital theatre or new forms of digital creation going forwards? What are the different strategies required for creating and distributing children’s digital theatre at different scales? Join this conversation with Imagination Stage Artistic Director Janet Stanford; David Sabel, a freelance film and theatre producer who created NT Live at the National Theatre in London and recently produced Romeo and Juliet , a hybrid theatrical film for PBS; and Helen Tovey, Co-Executive Director of the Unicorn Theatre in London – the UK’s leading theatre for children, producing a year-round program of new works for ages 0 – 13.

Integrating Consent-Forward Practices into Classrooms and Rehearsals with Madeline Geier

How can consent-forward principles apply to our learning and rehearsal experiences for young people? Considering early childhood through high school participants and multi-generational groups, participants will be invited to explore ways to center consent within their facilitation styles. With multiple options for engagement, participants will gain familiarity with language and exercises to foster a culture of consent in the environments they facilitate. Activities shared will include options for modifying common activities as well as exercises specific to honoring body autonomy and navigating boundaries for both large groups and partner work.

Breakout Session #2

Trauma Informed Arts Learning: Spotlight on Theatre for Change (Imagination Stage Host Breakout Session) with Joanne Seelig Lamparter, Triza Cox, & Hilda Lee Tijerina

Join the Theatre for Change team at Imagination Stage and learn the techniques that shaped our three core programs in Theatre for Change : Óyeme (programmed with refugee youth), Voices Beyond Bars (programmed with incarcerated youth) and Youth/Police Partnership (programming with DC youth and officers). This hands-on workshop will allow participants to walk away with some key activities to allow youth to open up, bond with others and take ownership in their identity and stories while promoting social justice. It will also provide some logistical and practical considerations including: staffing and teacher training, self-care, and partnership management techniques.

Revealing History Through Hyperlocal Theater with Peter Musante

In this participatory workshop, UP CLOSE Projects Founding Artistic Producer Peter Musante will walk participants through the creation of the UP CLOSE Festival , (2018-2020 at New Ohio Theatre in NYC’s West Village) offering techniques for combining immersive storytelling with civic engagement. Workshop participants will be invited to consider the multilayered histories of their own local cultural institutions and work through strategies, both creative and curatorial, to make them as accessible to the public as possible. Workshop participants will apply this model of local collaboration to their own contexts, inventing opportunities to engage audiences of all ages and abilities in thought-provoking civic experiences that are deeply connected to public space.

Alternative Approaches to Funding and Philanthropy in Social Justice TYA with Suzan Zeder, Michael M. Wood, Hy Hetherington, Sharnita C. Johnson, Miriam Gonzales, & Sarah Bellamy

A roundtable interactive discussion bringing together a visionary theatre administrator, an independent artist, an expert in grantsmanship, and two corporate philanthropists to explore alternative approaches to making and supporting socially engaged work for young people. Since the turn of the century, traditional models of philanthropy, commissioning, creating and developing  new work have been entrenched in essentially top-down hierarchical models where power and artistic control are posited with those who hold the purse strings and sign the contracts. Participants will explore how alternative fundraising approaches, creative partnerships and new developmental practices can work together to create ecosystems of sustained support for artists and organizations in Theatre for Young Audiences. How can we envision a philanthropy of hope and healing fueled by the power of live performance, the acumen of business and the values of social activism to support TYA now and into the future?

2024 Silk Road Odyssey: The Trek to Central Asia

In 1880-1881, five wagon trains of Mennonites left European Russia and headed east to Central Asia along the famous Silk Road. Seeking freedom from conscription and new economic opportunities, this group went east instead of west to North America as 18,000 did a decade earlier. In the last decade, new details of the Great Trek have emerged in the remarkable Silk Road cities of Tashkent, Samarkand, and Bukhara. Amidst the splendour of the Islamic architecture and often mountainous landscape, the Mennonite Great Trek story will emerge through journals and letters of trekkers, archival documents, and current reflections. Tour leader John Sharp is a retired college history and Bible professor whose passion for and knowledge of the Mennonite Great Trek along the Silk Road will give you valuable insight into this chapter of Mennonite history. John has led several tours to Central Asia and has developed relationships with locals who will give you insight into Uzbek life and culture.

Ai Weiwei’s ‘Zodiac’ Is a Mystical Memory Tour

Like a cosmological comic, the artist’s new ‘graphic memoir’ entwines recalled experience with legend and imagination.

The artist Ai Weiwei, in all-black attire, stands next to a work made from thousands of Lego bricks.

By Jonathan Landreth

As the Year of the Dragon dawns, the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has released “Zodiac,” a “graphic memoir” of scenes from his career — both real (hanging with Allen Ginsberg , the O.G. of Beat poets, in 1980s Greenwich Village) and imagined (debating Xi Jinping, China’s paramount leader). Each chapter frames the artist’s take on traditional beliefs about the characteristics humans share with the 12 animals of the Chinese lunar calendar. Gianluca Costantini’s intricate line drawings pair with Elettra Stamboulis’s comic-bubble text to help expand Ai’s lifelong campaign for free expression to a new medium for a new generation. Ai spoke with Jonathan Landreth about parents and parenting, punk rock and the passage of time, all via video chat last week from Berlin.

This conversation has been edited for length and clarity.

A zodiac cycle ago, in 2012, you were just out of jail and tired of Beijing trying to silence you. “ Twitter is my city ,” you told me. Now you live in Berlin, Cambridge and Portugal. Where’s your city today?

Twitter was my city because it was the only place for my expression at that time. Since 2015, when I left China, conditions have changed. I was under such pressure in China. Suddenly, I came to the so-called free world and Twitter was not so important. It was just one of the tools.

I consider nowhere home. Not China and not outside China. It’s strange. I just came back from New York. I consider none of these cities home. Home means you close your eyes and imagine the street and recognize a few names you grew up with. None of these places have this.

In “Zodiac,” you teach your son, Ai Lao, the legend of the Jade Emperor creating the calendar. What did you learn by explaining time?

Some say time is only an illusion. The illusion can be painful, or it can be happy. Some live in the past, and some struggle in the present. Someone may have no future. It’s hard to explain what time is about. The new generation needs some kind of reference when we talk about time. I can talk about the years I lived in Xinjiang, or the time my father was dying so I moved back to China from New York. You really need events to illustrate time. My son will turn 15 soon, so his time will be in China, then Germany, then England. That’s how he’ll understand it.

In a few “Zodiac” illustrations we see your son speaking with an image of your father, the poet Ai Qing , at his grave. Do you speak to him too?

It was an awkward situation. Ai Lao is a very independent boy. Perhaps it’s due to his experiences. He has his own perspective and independent way of thinking. Sometimes we tried not to let him voice his feelings, but he bowed to my father’s image, which we never do — head down to the ground. We never had that education and we never taught him to do that. How could a child do that? This surprised me. But it was natural, to show this kind of respect.

I don’t communicate with my father anymore. Not before he passed and not after. I regret I never asked him a solid question — what did he think about China or his time? I should have and it’s too late. Each generation bears the same situation. I wouldn’t want Ai Lao to ask me those questions. [But] his world will not be the same as mine. Probably my father never tried to pass his experience to me because he realized there was not much of a lesson to give to the next generation. That’s tragic. There’s a strong sense of loss that carries more value than any material life. It’s like being cut off from the most intimate relationship.

Some of “Zodiac” looks drawn from photographs, and some seems to depict dreams. Describe the process and why you chose the graphic medium for the sequel to your 2021 prose memoir .

Gianluca, the illustrator, and his wife, Elettra, and I sat together. The idea was to gather things from my memory, like a timeline, and offer mystical stories from China’s past. I explained it as a mix of memory and mythology. We thought this would relate not just my experience but general knowledge for whoever was interested. It’s a story with so much related to my situation that the publisher called it a memoir, but it’s not. Memory is subjective. We choose some things to remember and lots to forget.

Most images in the book are related to photos because I post all my images on Instagram . They did the research. They asked questions and I answered. I never wrote a sentence but I did edit. All the dialogue in the book is based on my interviews.

So it’s a collection of things you’ve said?

Yes. It’s almost like an A.I. work.

Each animal represents a different characteristic. The mouse is a trickster and the ox is loyal. Does birth year determine personality and compatibility?

When we were growing up as communists we didn’t have these superstitions. Gradually I realized through my zodiac artwork the profound meaning of this mythology to help understand individuals and society. It’s very different from the West, where you turn to the stars for meaning. Chinese relate to the animals around them. Only one of them is mystical, the dragon. This year, the Year of the Dragon, is supposed to be the most uneasy, uncertain, or dramatic year, which might be true. Us Chinese, we all believe in these animals, which, strangely enough, have often turned out to be more reliable about personal character, about who to associate with. It’s friendly knowledge, but the ones who believe in it really believe.

You’re a rooster who left China, which now is led by Xi Jinping, a snake — a rooster’s natural friend on the compatibility chart .

We’re supposed to be friends but we’ve had no chance to meet yet. There are 100 million roosters and 100 million snakes in China.

Am I mistaken, or is there in “Zodiac” an imagining of you debating the snake?

It’s a drawing by Gianluca. I think that face looks familiar to me. He is such a good illustrator. He can use simple lines to really capture the character.

If you met the snake, what would you say?

“Be a nice snake.” In Chinese, every animal is not good or bad. They all can be nice.

As an example of a tiger, you name the Nobel Peace laureate Liu Xiaobo , who died in 2017 after his release from prison. Who are today’s courageous tigers?

Internationally, the U.S. is still the tiger, but it’s a pretty old tiger. We have a Chinese idiom, “Even a dead tiger still has power”— because it has that look, that skin. The U.S. is still alive, still dominates and affects the global situation. In China, the Communist Party is the tiger. The Party has existed for 103 years and reached almost 100 million people. No other party can be this big for this long and still function very well, even with tremendous internal problems. It’s a system which is not just a political structure but has inherited a fatalistic society from the Qin Dynasty 2,000 years ago. Now, under the so-called opening up , they have survived and are catching up in every aspect with a kind of state capitalism. They don’t have the disadvantages of classic capitalism. They have a longer strategy, a bigger plan. They can play the game differently.

But who are the individual tigers with courage to speak out like Liu Xiaobo?

There’s no such person in China. Cats and tigers look the same, but China doesn’t even have cats.

The rabbit represents immortality and art. With the time you have left will you, like the German artist Joseph Beuys, who is featured in “Zodiac,” plant trees that thrive outdoors in open, public spaces, for all to see, or will you continue to show indoors, at museums that charge admission and are subject to political pressures?

For artists today, there are so many possibilities to not repeat this old game, which has lost interest and doesn’t connect with our human experience any more. I used galleries, museums and art fairs only because I saw them as ready-made. They’re just platforms, but absolutely not necessary.

After you posted a polarizing comment about the Israel-Hamas war, London’s Lisson Gallery delayed a show of your new art. (The tweet was deleted). When will the show open?

I have absolutely no sense. Show or no show, it doesn’t make any difference to me.

You’ve long stuck your finger in the eye of authority and you remain committed to free speech. You arrived in New York in 1981 just before the British punk band the Clash stormed American radio with the song “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” That question appears in your chapter on the dragon, a symbol of individual freedom. Was that conscious?

It was a conscious choice by Elettra, who employed a lot of word play and verbal information.

How punk rock did you feel when you left China in 2015?

I was a punk rock singer without a voice. I love that medium but I am the furthest I can be from being a musician.

Your art seems to express impatience with the world. Which artists in China share your impatience?

My art doesn’t actually express impatience with the world. In reality, the world is indifferent, so my impatience doesn’t hold much significance. Yet, there are frustrating moments in life, akin to a poorly written sentence that could be improved. My art is related to so-called contemporary practice, philosophy, or ethics. In China, almost nobody has experience with this kind of modernism or contemporary culture. They have good, meaningful, and skillful art, but it cannot be clearly discussed or interpreted. They are lost. The conversation is lost. It’s not good or bad. It’s just like the U.S.-China conversation, politically: also lost. They’re not talking on the same page.

What a great live show! Excellent tutorial for mini rockers...enough nods to mom and dad music to keep it awesome for everyone. Grandmas in the balcony were dancing! Very interactive with audience, no matter the seat. This was second time I've taken my daughter. We had such a great time concerts. She is seven and felt sorta old when we were filing in but that ask melted away when the Movers came on. Go, have a good time, many times over!

The Pharcyde

Nothing measures success more accurately, than longevity. In the early 90’s, when gangsta’ rap consumed the airwaves, and the majority of West Coast rappers strapped on their Locs, Chuck Taylor’s & Ben Davis’, The Pharcyde decidedly maintained a willfully weird vision. Opting to stay true to themselves with their left field but still South-Central sensibility, rap had seen few groups so self-deprecating and so smart, four visionary rappers adroitly able to split the difference between helium-voiced and hard-core. Listening to “Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde” decades after its release, its sense of timeliness is unmistakable. Every song on the album inverts a hoary hip-hop cliché. With classics like “Oh Shit,” “Otha Fish”, “Ya’ Mama,” and hit single, “Passing Me By,” it is not surprising that it shipped over a million units, garnered comparisons to De La Soul and Tribe Called Quest, and everyone from Pitchfork Media to The Source has hailed it as one of the greatest albums ever made.

Danielle Ponder

Bravery can take many forms. For Danielle Ponder it took the shape of a leap of faith: leaving her successful day job working as an attorney in the public defender's office in her hometown of Rochester, NY to devote herself full-time to sharing her powerful voice with the world. While working as a public defender, Danielle also toured Europe and scored an opening spot with George Clinton. In 2018, after five years as a public defender, she made the gutsy decision to pursue her No. 1 passion — music.

The National Parks

You know the feeling when the clouds part and the sun shines down on you, the rush you get when you run and jump into a lake at full speed, or the moment a gust of morning air brings new life as you step outside and look at the world around you? The National Parks translate these sensations into songs. The Provo, UT quartet—Brady Parks [vocals, guitar], Sydney Macfarlane [vocals, keys], Cam Brannelly [drums], and Megan Parks [violin]—breathe in inspiration from the world around them and exhale cinematic indie folk-pop powered by soaring harmonies, organic orchestration, and luminous electronics. Emerging in 2013, the musicians have consistently captivated audiences.

The Irie have toured with Tunnel Vision, Tomorrows Bad Seeds and have shared the stage with Common Kings, Pacific Roots, Mike Love and Kyle Smith.

Sarah Shook & The Disarmers

It’s obvious listening to Sarah Shook and the Disarmers’ clear-eyed, biting, and unafraid songs that integrity is the most important thing to the Chapel Hill, North Carolina, country-punk outfit.“A lot of artists are in this industry for fame, recognition, and money but those things don’t mean anything to me,” says bandleader River Shook. “Songwriting is it for me. It’s the only real healthy coping mechanism I've ever had. It’s life-saving. I don't care about any superficial things when I’m making a record.” On their resonant fourth album Revelations, produced by Shook and out March 29 via Thirty Tigers, these raw and resilient tracks come first. Throughout, Shook’s deft storytelling documents regular people getting by and keeping on, all presented without filter or pretension.

Galactagogues

On Winter Solstice 2023, the darkest night of the year, Galactagogues released their debut album to a sold out audience in their home town of Prescott, Arizona. From their roots as a family band, Galactagogues have refined their singular sound, sometimes called Wild Worldly Funkafolkadelic. Grounded in Meg’s songwriting and Cosimo’s musical eloquence, with lyrics and melodies that are both ancient and immediate, the band takes listeners on a full human journey - blending introspective poetry with irresistible grooves. Including traditional tunes from around the world, their music is raw and refined. The band has been playing to steadily growing audiences since 2019, with a covert mission to awaken and agitate.

From the very first days of its existence, the Moscow Metro was the object of civil defense, used as a bomb shelter, and designed as a defense for a possible attack on the Soviet Union.

At a depth of 50 to 120 meters lies the second, the coded system of Metro-2 of Moscow subway, which is equipped with everything you need, from food storage to the nuclear button.

According to some sources, the total length of Metro-2 reaches over 150 kilometers.

The Museum was opened on Sportivnaya metro station on November 6, 1967. It features the most interesting models of trains and stations.

Coffee Ring

The first scheme of Moscow Metro looked like a bunch of separate lines. Listen to a myth about Joseph Stalin and the main brown line of Moscow Metro.

Zodiac Metro

According to some astrologers, each of the 12 stops of the Moscow Ring Line corresponds to a particular sign of the zodiac and divides the city into astrological sector.
