Event description

Description

Stories live inside every-body, but we don't always have the language to bring those stories to spoken word stages. In this workshop we will explore ways to articulate and bring rhythm to, the sometimes ineffable trauma histories that live inside so many of us.

Using "nonsense" language, rhyme, humour and sound poetry, participants will explore how to express their own unspoken stories and hold space in a safe way for the stories of others. We will discover new ways to voice lived experience using absurdity and play to communicate honestly, accurately and with an authentic and powerful voice that moves the audience.

This workshop is for anyone who is interested in accessing the language that already lives inside them and to move beyond the limitations of traditional trauma narratives in an empathic and supportive environment.
