High Wattage: Introduction to Spoken Word Poetry & Performance with Regie Cabico

How do we make performance choices that heighten the poem's life? How do we "live" the poem and not simply "read" the poem? A slam text is your show stopper, your three-minute solo play. We will explore the vocal and physical techniques for audiences to "see" the poem. From the professional slammer to the virginal journal poet, we will stretch your interpretation of your over-performed texts, and we will prepare you to kick your verses in the squint of the spotlight in a nurturing environment.
