The Beauty of Play 2011: The Dark Side of Play
April 20th 2011 | 4 comment(s)

Staffordshire (UK) 9th – 11th September 2011

Ludemos announces the date and location for this year’s annual playwork under canvass Beauty of Play event. It will take place in Staffordshire over the weekend 9th – 11th September 2011 on the theme of The Dark Side of Play.

Everything has at least two sides: different perspectives that reveal the essence of the object, the feeling or attitude we are interested in. What would day be like without night? Summer without winter? The individual without society? The opposite of what we wish for helps reveal the boundaries of our desire – in games we like to be chased but not always to be caught; the last chocolate in the pack tends to be the sweetest and the one most savoured. And so it is with play; while it is often celebrated for its benefits, play also has a dark side, which according to our viewpoint may be seen as silly and troublesome, naughty and cruel or dangerous and deadly.

Previous Beauty of Play themes have included Beauty, Playing with Feeling, The Senses, The Elements, Creativity, Wildness and Everydayness. For more information, booking details and previous event reports see www.ludemos.co.uk/BOP.htm.

Early Bird bookings are being taken up to 21st June 2100.
