Song, poetry, storytelling, rap, melody and monologue are all elements that are used in slam poetry and spoken word. Each person is encouraged to express themself through own voice, identity and story to own the text and delivery. The Workshop has a written and vocal session. In the written session we will work with creative writing. We explore rhyme, rythm, methaphore, pictures, assosiation and different ways to develop a poetic style. In the vocal session we will work with dynamics in the voie, tempo, body language and other elements that can strengthen the performance. Sarah shares knowledge from own experience, meetings with other, and courses in her workshop.
