Every year, agilists from Romania gather in a beautiful place near the mountains for Agile Coach Camp. It is an unconference event, where a bunch of passionate people meet for a whole weekend in order to share and learn.
If you are curious how things went this year, take a look at our Twitter Feed https://twitter.com/hashtag/accro18
This year, me and Oana volunteered to Open the Space (moderate the Open Space Technology) on Saturday morning.
We wanted to do something different to be in accord with the “theater” theme, so we thought to put in scene our own screenplay. Isn’t it cool that our event is at the same time with Sibiu International Theater Festival? So, let’s see how it went:
On a special inspired moment I wrote the lyrics and found this beautiful musical cover. Then Oana added the scene directions and everything came nicely into place like a magical puzzle.
Of course we rehearsed. A lot. We even had a happy crowd of volunteers and we rehearsed together Friday night, at the location. In the end, here we are at the time of the show:
Music On, Let the Show Begin!
Tales From The Magical Forest
Agile Coach Camp Romania, Albota, 15th June 2018
Screenplay: Adi; Directions & Costumes: Oana; Music @ebunny
Once upon a time
in a Transylvanian village in the middle of the magical forest
There was a gathering;
People were coming from all cardinal directions and settling under the blue sky.
It was at dawn, a chilly – windy morning and the trees were swaying, bending towards to the people.
Nasty howling from packs of wolves far away you could hear.
There’s no escape if you dare out alone in fear…
[Enter Adi & 6 others]
Suddenly all rise!
[group rise, talk, then split into two groups, on both parts of the stage]
It is about the time.
Everyone has been waiting for this for too long…
They look each other in the eyes.
They know how important it is
What is to be done.
They are fearless.
They know what to do:
They split into groups.
Off to the woods, they find a suitable place …
Take out their weapons….
A CURIOUS MIND GAME:
[Dialogue Adi – Oana]
[pause, all sit down]
Some are getting bored or defeated, but never give up.
They switch the team, apply the RULE OF TWO FEET.
They simply stand up, look around and find another group to join their exercise.
And I see others that simply find their nest and lie comfortably.
Just lie, caring for themselves.
Then hop from one group to another like a BUTTERFLY
[Oana] [volunteers distribute post-its/cookies]
The bold ones – they cross-pollinate – like a BUMBLEBEE. They are so full of knowledge, that they are ready to share with everyone, in every group.
And more! – they take ideas from one group, add some personal flavor, and give them away to others in another group .
By the end of the day everyone is exhausted… (3.33)
[Adi] [Volunteers gather in a circle, look each other in the eyes]
But we all know
Today was a great day.
Because we grew stronger, and better,
and are now ready
for the Real Fight
It is is going to be soon – we know.
It is going to be harsh – we know.
AND WE ARE NOW PREPARED FOR IT!
We thank each other.
It’s been a rough day.
With lots of learning and insights.
Discussions and discoveries.
It’s now time to celebrate
LET THE FEAST BEGIN!
[…… music continues until fade out]
