Bring your words with you or write them in the workshop. Then turn them into a performance with the visuals and soundscapes of Matriark Theatre. If you’ve got something to say, this is a safe place to say it. Grow your tiny whisper into a mighty voice.
Our regular meet-ups for high-school students start with spoken word. Matriark Theatre joins us for some creative collaboration in our 3-hour workshop. At the end, you’ll put on a public performance and present your poetry.
This is a 2-part event:
Workshop: 4pm – 7pm
Hone your writing and self-expression through a series of writing exercises with poet Dr Gareth Jenkins. Members of Matriark Theatre will work with you to produce projections and soundscapes that make your words come alive. Grow your confidence in this non-competitive environment.
Book a place.
Performance: 7.30pm – 8.30pm
After the workshop, participants will put on a short performance for friends and supporters. Spoken words blend with audio and visuals to add another dimension to your words.
Book to watch the performance. Only book if you’re not attending the workshop.
