Spoken word is a stage art that lies somewhere between rapping, singing and writing poems. It is easier than singing, faster than poetry and you do not need to be a tough rapper to fit the part. Furthermore, due to the nakedness of the spoken word, it is the perfect medium with which to convey your feelings and your story to other people, and to let them think about what is going on in the world or just to make them laugh about relatable things.
What will you be doing?
Would you like to bring your words on paper to life on stage? Would you like to confidently give voice to your inner world? In order to tell your story as thoroughly as possible, you will be working from the inside out, during this course. The first four classes you will be focusing on the writing portion, and the content of your work. You will be receiving writing homework, and it will be expected of you to complete this. The second half of the classes will be a lot more performance-heavy as you will be preparing for a final presentation.
