Blend, merge and nurture your talents in writing and performing. We use improvisation exercises as a springboard for creating poetry and employ writing practices for use in spoken and non-spoken improvisations. Participants learn spontaneous techniques to use as writing-block releases and for poetic inspiration. Poems written on the spot will be used to invent scenes and characters. This workshop will enhance any prior knowledge as well as create new pathways for expression by using the whole body as both a tool and a toy to liberate your imagination!

Meet your Improvoerty leaders…

Elephant Girls by Alice Teeter“As I read Alice Teeter’s Elephant Girls I imagined a calliope playing in the background and every once in a while a bass drum interrupting with a clap of thunder. Wonderfully engrossing sounds, images, deeps and highs. A truly enjoyable book of poems.”

—Lewis Turco, author of The Book of Forms and The Familiar Stranger
