In Copenhagen, psychologist Esben Wilstrup, a 2009 graduate of the Institute’s International Class, has organized a workshop for Lois to address his co-workers at the Children and Youth Administration of The City of Copenhagen. Those invited are psychologists, support teachers, childcare auditors, specialists in reading and inclusion, and speech therapists. Later in the week, Holzman — joined by Castillo Theatre’s artistic director Dan Friedman — will lead A Full-Day Course in a Performative Approach to Learning and Development also organized by Esben. Friedman is also an invited presenter at the International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts conference, where he will speak on “Community Building, Theatre Making.”
