Wing It! - Interplay

Type: performer
WING IT! Performance Ensemble

WING IT! was formed by Phil Porter and Cynthia Winton-Henry in 1989. Since then the company has created full length improvised countless concerts of dance, storytelling and music. They have been featured in a form of community-based performance called “The Unbelievable Beauty of Being Human” in San Francisco, Seattle, Raleigh/Durham, Sydney, Chicago, and Minneapolis. They frequently appear in benefits for other causes including Habitat for Humanity, breast cancer research and AIDS organizations.

The company uses the practice of InterPlay as the basis for their work. Each concert is different and although they are often organized under a particular theme, the specific content of any particular performance is unplanned. WING IT! is known both for its humor, poignancy and sheer humanity. This Oakland based company has spawned other InterPlay-based performance companies around the world.

InterPlay is an active, creative way to unlock the wisdom of the body.

InterPlay is easy, fun, and life changing. It is based in a series of incremental “forms” that lead participants to movement and stories, silence and song, ease and amusement. In the process, we discover the wisdom in ourselves and our communities.

InterPlay integrates body, mind, heart and spirit. Life has become so fragmented. InterPlay helps to pull everything back together so we get more of what we want.

InterPlay is devoted to fun. It teaches the language and ethic of play in a deep and powerful way. If you are convinced that seriousness is the path to inner wisdom, then you might want to look elsewhere. If you would like to become a “recovering serious person,” then TYPICALInterPlay might be for you.
