Street training yesterday had a good turn out despite the weather 10 people came! They received medals for turning up. Again amazingly everyone wanted to try the insane floor diving technique, the people who just kind of awkwardly lay down were the best really, though a strapping canadian bloke glided a very long way, Imogen reckoned that Gethan would give him a runn for his money though. (a tutorial for those of you who haven't tried it yet) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGwLqPgXmDI
here are my hazy and subjective memories - please add or modify them in this mail or on the website http://playground35.servus.at/
Lying on the station floor is becoming a staple activity, in a star shape which looks and feels nice. I know we are creating a health and safety nightmare by blocking the main concourse, but passers by seem to like it (those of you who took part, what where your feelings?) in the church yard Liz introduced the idea of hiding things for people to find (liz would you share your motivations for this in a reply email to the list?) she handed out little toy soldiers, I thought they perfectly camoflage with the urban grey and creat mini worlds within worlds. when we got into the bushes to talk about joyful stuff we do or would like to do, Liz suggested on the tube re-editing your copy of the metro, changing the headlines or writing your own articles in the spaces. Imogen talked about waving to people on the bus especially from the top deck. Richard jumped up and placed one on top of a street lamp, i put one on the wing mirror of a police van, where else did they go? We did the traffic cone rendition of "it must be love", was great, people who thought they couldn't sing even joined in. Again this created positive reactions - some one on the top of a bus dancing wildly and passers by stopping, smiling and clapping. We bounced balls to and at people sometimes creating great interactions. Jana's idea was to play ball with a traffic cone, some one threw and the person with the cone had to catch. while we were doing this a man came along on a bicycle and wanted to play so much! There was much free-styling around the bouncing of balls and interacting with structures like the awning at Spitalfield's market and the people in the window of the sausage and mash shop. For a moment the sun shone and the rain fell in a london mossson and imo and i had a spazzy capoeira game (she was kick arse i was spazzy) we wandered down to the farm for tea and a 7th of a snickers each. I'm sure i've missed stuff please add.
