“Once upon a time there lived…’a king!’ my little readers will say immediately. No, children, you are mistaken. Once upon a time there lived a piece of wood.” — Carlo Collodi, The Adventures of Pinocchio

In late Summer 2010, Immediate Medium will begin work on The Assassins Chase Pinocchio, a piece of avant-garde theater for children inspired by Carlo Collodi’s 1883 coming-of-age novel The Adventures of Pinocchio. As part of our initial period of research we will be holding a FREE four-week storytelling workshop series for children ages 5 through 8. Each week we will tell a section of the story aloud and invite children to participate in a variety of activities to help us distill the story and reinterpret its themes and imagery from the very avant-garde point of view of the child mind.

To register your child, please RSVP to Max Dana at max [at] immediatemedium [dot] org. Space at the workshops is extremely limited and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, so please contact us as soon as possible to guarantee a spot.

Attendance at every workshop is not mandatory but highly recommended as we are interested in exploring how children experience the story as a whole. If your child is unable to attend, please write to us and we will send you an audio recording of the story and schedule a one-on-one follow-up interview with your child.

IM’s Sketchbook Series features work at its earliest stages of development. Sketchbook projects are meant to be first passes, “half-baked” beginnings of a larger exploration that will later culminate in a full production. These showings enable us to involve our audience in every step of the creative process, from the earliest “sketch” of a new work to its full realization.

    Everything said was actually very logical. But,
    consider this, suppose you wrote a catchier post title?
    I am not saying your information is not good., but
    suppose you added a post title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean IM Sketchbook
    Series: Free Pinocchio Readings for Kids | IMMEDIATE MEDIUM is a little boring.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how
    they write post titles to grab people to click.

    You might add a video or a pic or two to get people interested about what you’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
