VIDEO: One of six short videos produced by filmmaker Dawn Matheson and commissioned by ICASP and Musagetes. "Katy's Song" documents Jane Bunnett's work in Guelph as the inaugural ICASP Improviser-in-Residence, focusing on her work with KidsAbility. Dawn's focus on Jane's professional and personal relationship to Katy, a student in the program, considers the transformative potency of an improvisational pedagogy on both teacher and student.
