Performance and Workshop (Music Your Work New)
In every culture poets have collaborated with music and musicians--whether with a lyre in Greece, singing pantoums in Southeast Asia, with jazz in America, or ecstatic poetry in the Middle East. Poetry-music duo Thick in the Throat, Honey, has been creating and performing work that pushes both art forms for over a decade. Collaborating with music offers opportunities for poetic discovery in terms of form, sound and bodily connection. In this two-hour workshop, we will generate new work alone and together inspired by both silence and music. Participants will also learn methods of scoring and performing a poem in order to work with musicians in the future.
