Is Poetry Theater? A 5-week writing/performance workshop w/reg e gaines
Instructor: Reg E Gaines

This workshop takes place at Bowery Poetry Club on the following Sundays from 12PM-2PM

September 10
September 17
September 24
October 1
October 8

It's no accident the workshops are rooted in the familiarity of other writers' work. Sessions arent about memorization techniques but love and respect for printed text. Focus is placed on emotion as key in lifting words from the page. Well-written text shows, through imagery, what one feels. Once this decision is reached, there become options in dramatic interpretations. This is the basis of a series of sessions which will aid artists in analyzing text, creating new work, revisiting unpolished pieces, and sharpening performance skills. Over a five-week period, participants learn the similarities between poetry, hip-hop inflected spoken word pieces, soliloquies, monologues and poetry/theater. Suggested texts used in preparation for the workshops include poetry/theater by Miguel Pinero, Patricia Smith, Paul Beatty, Suheir Hammad, Lemon Anderson, Dierdre Moses, Danny Hoch, and selections from the anthology Aloud: Voices From The Nuyorican Poets Cafe. This book is a part of almost every public library's poetry collection in the United States and should be easily attainable at no cost.
