Come Alive: A Choreopoem Workshop
Do you have poems that feel like they’re ready to come alive? Have you wondered what it might look like to move your poetry from the page to the stage? This workshop is an opportunity to amplify your writing through theater and movement. The choreopoem is an artform first coined by the incomparable Ntozake Shange, author of "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf." Together we will honor her legacy by creating space for revising and expanding current written works while incorporating various performance techniques.
This workshop is great for writers and artists looking to experiment with a more interdisciplinary approach to their writing practice.
This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
