Cantab Workshop for Wednesday, August 29, 2018 with Jeremy Radin

Join Jeremy Radin, the night’s scheduled feature, for an early-bird workshop at the Cantab Lounge before the show. The one-hour workshop has limited space and begins at 5:30, with latecomers admitted no later than 6:00. This is a PERFORMANCE workshop and performers of all levels all are welcome.

In this workshop, Jeremy will teach poets performance techniques learned from twenty years of acting training. Poets will learn to bring their poems to life with specificity of intention, cast off ingrained speech patterns and cadences, and give something without having to give anything away. We’ll work on the performance of already existing pieces with a focus on making an audience feel captivated, cared for, and ultimately nourished.

To get the most from this workshop, please be prepared with a poem (of any length) that is already memorized. Performers of all experience levels are welcome.

Cover charge is $5-$20 sliding scale, which includes admission to the evening show. We ask financially stable poets to consider contributing the higher end of this scale (or more) in order to defer costs for others and support the artist’s donation of time to our space.

Due to the constraints of the venue, this workshop has limited space; room can be guaranteed to poets who identify as POC or queer. The best way to secure a spot in the workshop is to directly email the SlamMaster.

The venue is 18+ and a photo ID is required. For more information on the night’s open mic, slam, and feature from Jeremy, click here.
