Poetry and Improv – Dave Morris (VIC)
Dave Morris is not only an improviser, he’s also an accomplished spoken word poet and slam champion. This workshop will combine those two things. You’ll learn how to use metaphor and simile to find beauty in improvisation, how to use language to add more meaning and depth to your scene-work, and how to simply narrate beautifully. In this workshop, we will find the place where poetry meets improvisation.
Dave Morris is a speaker, storyteller, magician, and poet, but mostly he’s an improviser. He’s been performing improvisation proffesionally for over a decade and has participated in festival across Canada and around the world including Seattle, Chicago, Berlin, London and Amsterdam. He is the artistic director of the Paper Street Theatre co. and can be found most days teaching at his very own studio in Victoria. www.davemorris.tv
