RED BANK: PUTTING TEDx INTO PLAY AGAIN
The wisdom of the late Red Bank physician and international running philosopher Dr. George Sheehan is channeled by his son Timothy Sheehan (inset), in a TEDx Navesink presentation Saturday at Two River Theater.
What is TEDx Navesink? Among other things, it’s “nonfiction theater” in which “every talk is a dramatic arc about ideas.”
Or so said Rumson-native, software entrepeneur, actor and venture capitalist Brian Smiga speaking to redbankgreen last year about the inaugural version of the event, which he organized.
The concept of nonfiction theater again takes center stage this Saturday, as the second annual TEDx Navesink event commandeers Red Bank’s Two River Theater for a full day of live talks, performances and art exhibitions built around the theme of “play” — “a facilitator of greater openness, tolerance, creativity and curiosity” that can act as “a positive and resourceful force at any age,” says Smiga.
