Act Like an Animal: Exploring Ecology

Diane Bulan

This program is available in person or virtually SYNCHRONOUS (live).


Humans aren’t the only species on earth, we just act like it! Using acting and improvisational skills, students will get to act like animals - or plants, or even bacteria! - to demonstrate how all living organisms are interconnected. Led by long-time KCYA teaching artist Diane Bulan, students will learn about ecosystems and the importance of the balance of nature. Available as a single workshop or a multi-workshop residency.
