2023 March – Fellowship Week

Fellowship Week 2023 at the Imagination Factory and in Luna Park was a week of pure magic. As a member of the troupe, co-ceo, adult shaped by traditional systems turned newby puppeteer, I had the opportunity to build bridges of unlikely connections with people from all walks of life. We united in our love for creativity, imagination, and joy.

One of my most memorable experiences was riding on an amusement park ride as an adult. I felt a rush of excitement and childlike wonder as I whizzed through the air. But what made the experience even more special was being part of a magical secret show designed to spark joy.

As a puppeteer, I was behind a black cap, but I could see people’s eyes light up with happiness as they watched our performance. It was an incredible feeling to know that I was a part of something that brought joy to others. The energy of the music moved me to emotion, and I felt my heart fill with happiness as we told “story”.

Before the Fellowship week, I was afraid to sing in the choir. But being a part of the puppeteer troupe showed me that singing at the top of my lungs could be transcendent. There was something magical about being part of a group of people singing together, their voices melding into one beautiful harmony.

As someone who hasn’t identified as a creative being in the arty sense, I had the privilege of helping to give energy to a story that touched people’s hearts and made them smile. It was an experience I will never forget, and I feel so grateful to have been a part of it. Building bridges of unlikely connections is what made this week so special. It brought people together in a truly magical way, and I will always cherish the memories of the fellowship week 2023 at the Imagination Factory and in Luna Park.
