Created by: Keren Rosenbaum
All the instructions in the “Zero to 100 IT Collection” are the kind of play instructions that were in different ways or another were performed by professional musicians/artists/performers on and off stage and are now shared in a way that allows everyone to follow the instructions and engage in performing them. The aim is to be present, free of judgment, embracing our confusion, allow us to make mistakes and celebrate them and above all have fun and keep a flow very much the same as allowing ourselves to sing or play. The playing is the aim, there’s no win or lose.
Why playfulness is important? It’s a fantastic coping mechanism for stress that has already been successfully proved with underline research from psychology, sociology etc.. The idea of keeping us engaged, creating a meaning in the moment and connecting with both ourselves as well as others provides a simple direct and effective way to become resilient, agile and productive. You play for playing, just for playing. Your playfulness will make the performance of the instructions your own unique interpretation. Those instructions are like an ‘open-source’ and at times you can be inspired to start creating variations. It's important to notice that a variation still allows enough connection to the source so we can identify this is the same game/score. Feel free to explore it, play with it until it becomes yours.
The rules/instructions are a starting point to allow us a sense of the flow of the game/composition but it is a starting point and from there we can explore what feels right for us. Rules are something else to play with, to tune to the players. Variations can create access to everybody who wants to play to join. A huge part of a good game is when we feel connected and mindful. Laughing together, being together and playing together.
Most of the games/scores require nothing more than two people or more but playing with ourselves is also always a fun option.
