Poem to Poet, Poet to Audience Workshop with Marcus Omari Summer 2019
This reserves your spot. We appreciate your time in reading the logistics & filling this out to best accommodate folks.
** NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. All genders, races, and terrestrial beings welcomed!**

Marcus Omari will lead an engaging performance-based poetry workshop set to exploring techniques connecting Poem to Poet and Poet to Audience. This workshop will focus on the importance of the poet and writer’s role as “Messenger.”

Participants will be asked to participate in a variety of performance poetry exercises: Reading, Writing, Vocal play, and Physical Performance! Participants will learn techniques of interpretation and ways to identify elements of vocal and physical performance cues woven into poetic works. Throughout the session, personal oratory tips unique to Omari’s performance expertise will be shared and attendees will also be asked to contribute to the collection of “performance best practices” gathered along the way.

Each participant should arrive anticipating a "safe" and supportive opportunity to share i.e. Perform in some capacity. Weather by modeling an exercise as an individual, in a group or showcasing the implementation of lessons learned for the collection of attendees; the goal is to ultimately integrate energy and action into our workshop experience. The purpose of this fun loving workshop is to explore poetry and poetry performance techniques that can better equip poets of all levels of writing with tools to sharpen their own performance skill set and build upon each of our unique performance styles.
