Toronto Poetry Project is back with its Be Better or Whatever workshop serieds, this time run by Ian Keteku and all about honing your performance chops!
About the workshop:
Be the verb & action words
What is the importance of the smallest finger in a spoken word performance? How is the poem asking the artist to stand, to move? 2010 World Poetry Slam Champion and two-time champion coach for the TPS Team Ian Keteku encourages us to live out our words on stage. Join him as he facilitates a workshop where participants experiment with body, voice and the music of their poems giving more life to their writing.
Come prepared with poems (preferably memorized but off paper is fine too). Any poem at any stage (original or cover) is welcome.
7pm doors. 730pm workshop (please don't be late)
PWYC cover ($5-$10 suggested)
