Blurring the Wobbly boundaries between Page and Stage
A Workshop with The Poetry Divas at RUA RED Arts Centre
Friday 18th October at 6.30pm
Places limited, book early to avoid disappointment!
Would you like to build up confidence in reading your poems aloud onstage? Are you looking for advice and tips on how to improve? This workshop is not about strictly performance poetry and or reciting poems; it’s about poetry in performance, for an audience.
As well established poets and performers of their own poetry, The Poetry Divas will focus in this workshop on the art of performing poetry for others. They will discuss rhythm, emphasis, dramatic pause, timing, movement, flair and nerves. After polishing your performance skills, the workshop will culminate in a performance to put them into practise in front of an audience.
Please bring along a few poems which you would like to work on, or poems by another poet which you would like to perform.
6.30pm - 9.30pm
Minimum age 16
Poetry Divas are Kate Dempsey, Triona Walsh, Barbara Smith and Maeve O’Sullivan
