Workshop led by NYC performance poet Anthony McPherson. What do you do with your body on stage? Moving too much can be distracting, and too little might add an unintended air of civilian, non-miraculous energy to the poem. In this workshop, we'll explore not only how to add choreography to a piece, but also how much and what style. We'll also learn methods wherein movement helps bond the poem to muscle memory.
