It was a fantastic experience to make dolls at Mäster Olofsgården community centre in Stockholm old city. It is a pleasant calm space with lots of activities that welcomes everyone with an opened heart.
The makers were Elizabeth and Carola. We shared our lives experiences and lots of laughs. Elizabeth was born in the old city and invited me to a tour throughout the areas and stories of her childhood. Could I find a better guide?
Another day we made dolls with Adin who received me in her flat, we made two dolls. We also shared our experiences and were amazed by the similarities of them.
We made 14 dolls in total.
‘Now I have made a doll that will be one in 8 billion. Hope it goes to someone who will be happy. ’
‘These are dolls for the world’s children to look after each other.’
‘This project is super cool.’
‘Cozy, peaceful session with good talks about love, life and dreams.’
I felt so blessed to know MO and their people and to meet Adin. I can’t wait to return.
Thank you very much for these lovely days together. Hope to see you all soon.
‘Improvisation happens when we do whatever we want to do to take care of ourselves, to take care of others, and to take care of the planet. And improvisation is free, it is for everyone and it is anywhere, it is love basically.’
I attended GII Global Improvisation Initiative event online in June 2021.
I was very inspired by everybody. I slept. I woke up with these lines in my head.
Middle of March we met at Omnibus Theatre for two evenings, 6 to 10pm, and an afternoon that finished also in the evening at 9pm.
Lauriane, Nicolás, Nelson, Camilla, Calia, Stacey and Sue joined us. We made 7 news dolls and I finished quite a few dolls from previous events.
‘Someone somewhere is being helped right now and doesn’t even know about it.’
‘My third doll. Joyful and magical as always. Thank you Regina!’
It was our last event before social distancing due to coronavirus. Omnibus, as well all other venues, closed their doors and we began our new routine in our homes.
I feel this situation is an extreme wake up call. Nature wants to be healthy. We are Nature. We will invest all our work in loving care in all levels, to ourselves and everything else that surround us. We Nature will be healed.
Thank you so much dearest Omnibus team for all your support and a huge thank you for all the makers, we truly had a wonderful time together.
