Embodying Spoken Word

Performance Poetry is a practice that engages the body and the voice in the sharing of the words. The ways in which we communicate and perform work is as important as the formation of the words themselves.

 

In this workshop, poets who perform or want to perform their works will be invited to experiment with and practice various techniques in embodying their poetry in performance. 

 

Areas covered in the workshop:

  • Physicalizing performance and exploring ways to maintain authenticity, intentionality, and clarity in the body.
  • Vocal health and sound production- learning techniques to maximize the efficiency of the voice and reducing tension/strain/wear and tear from phonation
  • Learn exercises and tools that engage the body in the support of memorizing words

The workshop will be delivered in English, and is readily accessible for most abilities, with adaptations available with notice. Please reach out in advance if there are access needs that could be addressed. 

The workshop structure will include:

  • A brief presentation
  • A group warm up
  • Individual exercises and practice
  • Pair/small group work
  • Individual coaching
  • Question and Answer & final resource sharing

To participate in this workshop, please come prepared with 1-2 minutes of poetry. Memorization is NOT required.
