Voice and the Ecology of Performance Poetry


The Imperial Hotel

35 Erskineville Rd Erskineville

Part exploration of post-doctoral thesis, part joyous experiment of play, this workshop examines the role of voice in Scott-Patrick Mitchell’s PhD thesis An Ecology of Performance Poetry. Participants will examine how the body, the stage and the voice combine to provide a habitat for a living, breathing entity: the poem. More than anything though, this workshop is about being a little bit silly, having a whole lot of fun and discovering how play can add joyous elements to the performative voice.
