Writing Body Workshop at Poetry Emergency!
Time & Location
About the Event
Poet Scott Thurston and dancer Gemma Collard-Stokes will lead a workshop exploring the ways in which the acts of improvisation and writing can form and inform one another. Together we will discover how words arise from movement and movement gives life to text. We will use different approaches to develop, perform and hone both our written and physical explorations. Shifting between the moving body, speaking and writing, we will find new ways of working towards performance. This workshop is for those interested in language and communication yet wish to explore it from a new angle. Participants will be willing to move, speak, play and write to fully explore language in relation to, and through the moving body. By looking at elements of space, dynamic, quality and sensorial experiences, this workshop promises to explore how improvising with words can improve our perception of language and our ability to articulate.
Location: Salford University, New Adelphi Studio Theatre, M5 4WT
