Remy Bumppo Presents a Workshop with Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai
Join Chicago-born, Brooklyn-based HBO Def Poet Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai (www.yellowgurl.com) in an interactive spoken word and hip hop theater performance workshop exploring how to use word, voice, body, and movement towards personal and community change. Exercises will spark the creation of solo and collective spoken word pieces and focus on exploring from negative freedom ("freedom from") to positive freedom ("freedom"). We'll also be focusing on how to use tools like Boal's Theater of the Oppressed Techniques and Liz Lerman's choreographic toolbox to use writing and performance as a forum for social dialogue and community problem-solving. No experience necessary. Come ready to write, move, and speak your truth!
