Why Spoken Word?
It's unavoidable, poetry has always played vital role in our understanding of the world around us.
From the nursery rhymes and songs our parents, grandparents and early school teachers taught us, through the classical poets such as Shakespeare and Keates found in dusty school text books, right through to the contemporary RAP, Drill, Spoken Word Artists and Lyricists.
Poetry one way or another has always held a significant place in our lives.
Poetry is a great way to express our inner most feelings, and to make those feelings heard by others through the choice of our words.
The way that words are formed on a page, can make all the difference in how they will be interpreted by the people around us. This is usually done using metaphors and other forms of abstract phrasing that can make a person really think. This allows things to be viewed in a manner in which someone never has before.
It is a way of getting people to read between the lines of an experience or something being said.
Poetry puts into words, the very things that the average person finds hard to express. It gives us a type of doorway to our dreams and imagination. It takes the power of everyday words, and gives them the strength to communicate.
What is ordinary and bland in everyday words, becomes special within the world of poetry. There is something in many daily lives that is missing. This empty spot, is often filled with poetic words and stories.
Led by our professional facilitator, the Spoken World workshops explore all aspects of Spoken word performance.
