Authority through ambiguity?

After I have invited the performers into my classroom I have both noticed and will now reflect upon the notion of authority created through performance with the students’ reaction central to my observations. I have realised that by turning my teaching into a performance, or by simply amplifying certain aspects of my personality (that is – according to the Sisters themselves what performance art actually is) then I can enhance…

My speech in Rhetorics about Sisters Academy

I chose my speech not to be very long because its more like a rhetorical conclusion and it doesn’t have to be long when its only supposed to make you question these two weeks: “In this universe you get so many impressions. So many things that makes you wonder. It can be good or it can be bad. But the question is; what can you bring with you? Which learning…

Dinner for the Performers

Today my class and I where going to make a Dinner for the performers at Sisters. Well, we were all by our selves (Our teacher had a sick child) and we should plan WHAT the performers were going to eat, and HOW we should serve and present it.

Spring was dawning after the longest of winters. Long, dark horizons leered day and night over the landscape…

A swarm of thoughts

I have lost myself. There is too much I want to do and not enough time to do it in. I have taken on too many projects, which calls on me to prepare new layers to them every day. Every moment I am stimulated in a new way and my head is spinning with ideas. The collegues are so inspiring to follow and the aspect of coorporation is the best…
