A fun and interactive workshop that explores the nuances of performance poetry, in collaboration with The Project Cafe.

The workshop will focus on the difference between writing for the page and writing for the stage. It will teach you ways to approach a poem, whether through visual techniques or writing exercises. The workshop will cover group exercises, and individual exercises that are tailored to meet your specific needs. We will also drown our senses in spoken word performances and exchange views and opinions on what works and what doesn’t.

Bring a pen, paper and a poem you want to work on, rest will be provided.

Cost: 1000 Rs
