Spoken Word: Writing & Performing Poetry
26 June, 2018 — 17 July, 2018
Tuesday, 7.00pm — 10.30pm
Instructor: Shivram Gopinath
Writing is rebellion. Performing it, is freedom.
The workshop will be a hands-on immersion into the simultaneously meditational and visceral art form of spoken word. You will meander through genres such as hip-hop, prose monologue, comedy, and traditional poetry reading, and explore spoken word’s historical significance and its presence in popular culture.
We will battle demons, suture wounds, walk in others’ shoes and get drunk on laughter. We will identify themes you want to delve into, craft pieces, and perform them in a real world reading.
