at Creative Clay
A Sparks Collaborative Ensemble project – creating movement, visual art, theatre, poetry and song inspired by words, with the terrific artists of Creative Clay and our wonderful team members actor Jan Neuberger, singer and actor Stephanie Roberts and poet Helen Pruitt Wallace.
An exhibition of the visual artwork from this project and special performances took place at Creative Clay to celebrate Paula Kramer’s spectacular 85th birthday. This project was funded by a 2021 St. Pete Arts Alliance grant awarded to Paula Kramer.
Paula Kramer mentored visual artists Chris C. and Hanna V. as they created a dance inspired by my short play Tune for the Triangles, performed during rehearsals by Vickie Daignault.
A rousing rendition of Boing! was performed by Gina K., Lindsay J., Marquise R. and Jan Neuberger.
Stephanie Roberts created the celebratory crowd-pleasing song “Good Time” with suggestions by Mikey J. and Sarah D., and all three performed together – plus an encore with the audience all dancing. Marissa H. wrote the ekphrastic poem, “Dream Catcher” inspired by her painting of the same name, with mentorship from St. Pete Poet Laureate Helen Pruitt Wallace.
