Travel Machine Takes Campers on World Adventures

by Natalie Goodnow, Artistic Associate

From June 18-22, Theatre Action Project campers at University of Texas in Austin “traveled” the globe, seeking to document cultural and arts traditions from throughout the world. We warmed up our imaginations and then embarked in our travel machine to fulfill our mission: to save the peoples of the world from the effects of the harrowing “sameness gas.”  We received (imaginary) letters with pleas for help from:

  • Afghanistan
  • Brazil
  • France
  • Japan
  • South Africa

Campers explored the cultures of several countries

We then created our very own World Adventure Guides and a museum to share what we discovered with our friends and families.  Thank you to the UT Dept. of Theatre and Dance for making the adventures possible!
