The Workshop

For our first live workshop, Tiny Spoon is partnering with Poetry Is: A Sound Experience to bring you a vivid, experimental exploration into how the art and elements of performance can enhance your writing and creative practice.

At a time like this, when our social interactions are limited, often from behind a screen, how does performance allow us to connect?

Together, we will focus on the many connections of poetry and performance with writers who crave to break down sound and language barriers in search of new dimensions. In this workshop we will be questioning the meaning and intention of the poetic gesture, working in the breath of performative icons and artists, and practicing our very own gestures of sound, syntax, material relations,  and literary gumbo. Please join us, all writers welcome. No previous performance experience necessary.

Inspirations: CA Conrad, Anne Waldman, Hannah Wilke, Phillip B. Williams, Mariko Nagai, Cecilia Vicuña, Charles Olson, and more!
