Event description

Description

How can you break out of your usual habits as an artist and performer? How can we listen to our fellow storytellers to each contribute our piece of the performance puzzle? Let’s return to the joy of words, remove the goal of a perfect performance, and collaborate to play with art. Through ensemble-building and improvisation, we will come out with a performance piece unlike anything you’ve repeated before. You will leave with new tools to create, and an increased confidence in improvisation and collaboration. We will be doing some light physical activity (ie. walking in the room, sitting on the floor.) Dress in clothes you can move in. All bodies and abilities are welcome and will be accommodated.


About the Facilitator

Janice Jo Lee (she/her), aka Sing Hey, is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist. She is a spoken word poet, folk-soul singer-songwriter, playwright-actor, and educator from Kitchener, on Haldimand Tract treaty territory. Lee is a hard femme queer radical and is passionate about building flourishing communities based in justice and joy through art. She believes in the power of storytelling to build a bridge across difference and bring people together. Her latest compositions are Ancestor Songs, wailing and heart-wrenching melodies full of power and ferocity. She is working on her upcoming albums Ancestor Song, and Lonely is the Lullaby.


Accessibility

There is an elevator available to get to the space and there is a gender-neutral, single-stall, wheelchair-accessible washroom on each floor. The maximum number of participants for this workshop is 25.


Guelph Spoken Word does not want cost to be a barrier to your creative growth. Please contact us if you have any accessibility concerns.
