Spoken Word and Theater Workshops Lead By Visiting Artist Lenelle Moïse

Powerhouse poet, theatre artist and dynamic speaker Lenelle Moise will be in residence in Putney the week of Oct 27- Nov 3.   Lenelle is nationally renowned and celebrated for her writings, performances, and workshops on  race, class, feminism, LGBTQ identities, new theater aesthetics, immigration and Haitian-American culture.  She has taught and performed at colleges, theaters and conferences across the United States.

As part of her time here in Putney, Lenelle Moïse will conduct two workshops open to the community, at Next Stage Arts Project, 15 Kimball Hill in Putney.

Tuesday, October 29, 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Lenelle's first workshop, SPOKEN WORD, SELF-NAMING & RESISTANCE, combines live demonstration, writing prompts, theatre exercises, audio recordings and group discussion to explore performance poetry as an activist art-form, building on the notion that "the personal is political."  Moïse recounts the history of the Spoken Word - especially as it relates to jazz, the Black Arts Movement, Hip Hop and Slam - Participants collectively interpret texts, practice persuasive performance techniques and start composing their own "I Am" poems in a constructive environment.

Wednesday, October 30, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Her second workshop, RADICAL VOICE & MOVEMENT, is an interactive and highly physical performance workshop for actors, musicians, dancers, poets or anyone interested in radical self-expression, during which the voice and body are explored as political texts that compliment the written word.

The cost for each of these workshops is $25.00.  Space is limited and advanced registration is required through Green Mountain Crossroads.  Reserve online or call 802-490-0692. Scholarships may be available.

Proundly presented by Sandglass Theater, Next Stage Arts Project, Green Mountain Crossroads. Lenelle's weeklong residency will conclude with 2 performances of her acclaimed solo, auto-biographical piece "Womb-Words, Thirsting" presented at Sandglass Theater on Nov 2-3, 7:30pm.

This presentation is made possible by funding from the National Performance Network and the Vermont Community Foundation.
