InterPlay is a global social movement dedicated to creating community through play and fun. It is a practice and philosophy rooted in the power of play. It is an easy to learn, creative process that uses movement, storytelling, and voice. It balances experience with reflection and activity.
Integrating body, mind, heart and spirit, InterPlay celebrates and creates connection and community. Through this simple form of play, we learn more about ourselves and each other. It is incremental, affirming, and something that anybody can do!
ABOUT MONTHLY RAVENSWOOD INTERPLAY SESSIONS
Currently, the main InterPlay sessions in Chicago occur in Ravenswood at Ravenswood Presbyterian Church on the 2nd Friday of each month from 6:30-8:30pm and the following morning on Saturday from 9:30 am to noon. Participants can attend one or both sessions. All who desire to participate are encouraged to RSVP to give the leaders a sense of who will be attending. However, an RSVP is not necessary to attend. Note that the ideas and activities in the event itself do not necessarily represent those of Ravenswood Presbyterian Church.
ABOUT MONTHLY FRIDAY NIGHT INTERPLAY IN RAVENSWOOD
Certified InterPlay Leader, Jane Siarny, invites us into a time to let go of the week, shake it out and play in community. Freedom comes from playing with InterPlay's forms of storytelling, vocalizing, moving & stillness.
ABOUT THE EVENT LEADER: JANE SIARNY
Certified InterPlay Leader Jane Siarny (M.F.A.) is a trainer in the InterPlay Life Practice & InterPlay Training Program and performs, teaches and creates community events for all ages and levels of ability. Jane discovered InterPlay when injuries had limited her dance abilities and she was looking for a new way to move from the 'inside out.' In the process she would also discover the joy of storytelling and vocalplay. To spread the amazing work of InterPlay, she co-founded OUTABOUNDS Performance Company in 1994 and it has been going ever since! She lives in a western suburb of Chicago with her husband and 15 year old son. InterPlay helps her navigate the amazing play of relationships, self discovery and connection with spirit. Jane's story can be found in What the Body Wants by InterPlay's creators Cynthia Winton-Henry and Phil Porter.
