A Midsummer's Night Dream

On Tuesday 13th March, the theater group that works at the Chrysalis Theater in Camphill Milton Keynes performed parts of A Midsummer's Night Dream as part of the communities monthly assemblies.
This was a fun yet classical version of Midsummer’s Night Dream with a twist, exploring Shakespearean language. The piece was written in verse to help with learning lines, improving memory, using gestures to represent words, exploring accents, movement and body memory which allowed speaking whole sentences in gestures.

Valentine's Day Party

Here are some photos of a Valentine's Party that resident's and co-worker's had at the Chrysalis Theater in Camphill Milton Keynes on Tuesday 27th February 2018.
St. Valentine's Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. The most popular martyrology associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.

Pancake Day

On Tuesday 13th February, residents and co-workers from Camphill Milton Keynes celebrated Shrove Tuesday (or Pancake Day). The expression "Shrove Tuesday" comes from the word shrive, meaning "confess"  so people can make a special point of considering what wrongs they need to confess.

To celebrate this day, we held a pancake race. Each participant had to carry a pancake in a frying pan, and while running had to toss their pancakes and catch them in the frying pan.  There were several races done until there was a race with all the best runners.
