The Trickster in Politics and Culture: The Power of Playfulness 

Dr. Shepherd Siegel, Tues. Sept. 24, 7-8:30pm, $15
Join Shep Siegel for an entertaining and fascinating presentation based on his book, Disruptive Play: The Trickster in Politics and Culture. The message of Disruptive Play is about tricking power into committing acts of love. It journeys from ancient folkloric appearances of Tricksters such as Raven and Èṣù-Elegba, to their confined role in Western civilization, and then on to Trickster’s 20th century jailbreak as led by dada and the hippies. Disruptive Play bears witness to how this spirit informs social progress today. Such play is revolutionary and lights the path to a transformed society.  


Dr. Shepherd Siegel is a writer, a rock and jazz musician, and educator. He has over thirty publications and has won numerous awards. He led Career and Technical Education for Seattle Public Schools for sixteen years. He returned to his countercultural roots to write Disruptive Play and spread its message of playfulness and progressive change.
