*30 Micro-Plays in 60 Minutes*
BY SHARON OJANPA MACKEY
Show Biz time again! The Finnish Heritage Museum once more sponsored a series of performance arts. This summer’s program was made possible by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council and is part of the Creative Aging Ohio Initiative (CAOI). The program was directed by Park Cofield and Lisa Yanofsky, and included two components – a theater workshop series and an original performance. The activities were intended to provide meaningful, person centered art experiences for older adults in Fairport Harbor and surrounding communities, and to support artistic mastery of theater skills, personal creativity, and social engagement.
On Friday, June 24, 2016, 11 FHM members ranging in age from 67 to 86, and three teens performed in the world premier of Create / Make / Perform : 30 Micro-plays (approximately) in 60 minutes (approximately). Each two-minute (approximately) play was written by either a cast member or another senior, thus making this performance chock full of world premiers.
