Present. Explore. Create. Interact.
1) We Present the story to the group of young people.
2) We Explore the story and the world of the literary piece by integrating theatre workshops into core subjects like math, science, English, and art.
3) The DogEar Team creates a set inspired by the young people's ideas, and then installs it into the school one Friday afternoon.
4) The students, faculty, staff and parents Interact with and utilize this space for one week (but make sure to knock, one of the characters may be inside!)
Through the support of the Pave Arts Venture Incubator Grant, we partnered with Create Academy in Spring of 2016 to bring the world of Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter to their school.

Dream (Seoul, South Korea)
DogEar partnered with South Korean TYA artist Young Nae Choi to help curate an immersive installation piece based around surrealist art. DogEar co-founder Danica acted as a consultant for building and co-implementing workshops for a group of preschoolers, which then influenced the final installation.
This opportunity allowed both DogEar and the partnering artists to explore non-verbal ways of communication for international collaborations.
