A hands-on introduction to contemporary performance poetry for everyone between the ages of 12-15: beginning with the Nuyorican Poets` Cafe in New York City, the early days of Poetry Slam in Chicago, to the issues of Slam Poetry in the US today. Often, American Performance Poets deliver content that is based on the experience of minorities living in North America.
There is a strong focus on the delivery in American Performance Poetry; we will profit from this approach through exercises that help with speaking in front of a group, expressing yourself, and listening. It is possible to perform your own texts in this workshop, as there will be time to write your own pieces in English.
You will practice your English conversation skills, gain more assertiveness in speaking in front of others, and you will be inspired to write your own poems. The experience of raising your own voice will prepare you for all kinds of stages, including class presentations, and public speaking in general.
FRANZISKA RUPRECHT is a professional performance poet with an academic background in poetry and creative writing. In fall 2016, she toured and researched the poetry scenes of New York and Detroit.
