Personal Stories for a Sea of Change


Michael Cheng is an applied drama practitioner. He uses applied drama and action methods in working with vulnerable communities, social issues, and personal development.

He hopes to do his bit to hold a (Good!) space for whoever comes for his Personal Stories for a Sea of Change sessions. He doesn’t think about success and goals, believing that we already have enough of “that kind of thinking” in our lives.

I hope the space is good and safe enough for people to feel connected and nourished. If it is good, some people will come back. For those who don’t, maybe they have already received what they need. Whoever comes are the right people. Whatever happens is the right action. We will go where we go. Together.


Personal Stories for a Sea of Change is a workshop where we free our creative spirits. These sessions are for anyone and everyone who is curious and willing to come build a space for interpersonal connections, self-exploration and reflection, and mutual support.

Each session is unique, because everyone brings different things to it. Personal stories, drama games, art-making activities, movement practices, and dramatic improvisation, come together in an eclectic mix.

No experience in any artistic pursuit is necessary. All you need is an open heart and an adventurous spirit.
