RUMBLE SA Workshop #1 with Manal Younus

Salisbury Institute Hall

17/19 Wiltshire Street, Salisbury, South Australia

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

A FREE workshop for ages 26 and under. Presented by Spoken Word SA in partnership with Arts South Australia, Writers SA and The City of Salisbury’s 12 – 25 program. Salisbury Institute Hall, 17/19 Wiltshire Street Salisbury South Australia.

A diverse skill set is needed to be an accomplished spoken word performer. They include compositional skills (adapting vocabulary and grammar to the medium, developing an authorial voice, choice of poetic style), performance skills (vocal technique and phrasing, creating a unique stage presence, timing, memorisation, dealing with mistakes) and professional skills (meeting deadlines, working within event guidelines, building a public profile). If you are 26 or under please join us in this brand new initiative aimed at sharpening the skills of both developing and brand new young artists.

Join Manal Younus, published poet, Australian Poetry Slam finalist and community advocate together with two time Australian Poetry Slam Finalist and Spoken Word SA co-director Kami McInnes as they guide you in a free half day workshop that will encourage you to create new work that can be developed, critiqued and rehearsed in the workshop environment. The Rumble SA will then offer participants an opportunity to showcase their work at a series of poetry slam performance events.

MANAL YOUNUS is an Australian based freelance storyteller who hops between Kaurna Land and Naarm so often that she no longer knows where she lives. As a Muslim with Eritrean origins living in Australia, the young writer and spoken word artist uses her poetry to both discover and strengthen her identity as well as to spark thought and discussions amongst those around her. Manal facilitates writing and performance workshops in schools, community groups and professional environments to encourage others to develop their own voices.

Sarah Pearce: April Poet-in-Residence at the Adelaide City Library

 

Sarah Pearce is our special April 2018 Adelaide City Library Poet-in-Residence with her residency, Women Write Together.

This project is about women writing together, collaborating, borrowing, even stealing… Ever heard it and wished you’d written it? Ever deeply connected your own experiences to those described by a poet, a poem or a single line? Let’s do it! Let’s be inspired by Tempest, Bird, Plath, Smith, Dickinson and Sappho. Let’s borrow, build and converse, to create poems together, woven from multiple voices. Performance will also be collaborative, as we speak each others words.

In seeking to liberate and promote women’s voices, particularly the collaboration of those voices, these workshops are open to anybody who identifies as a woman or girl. I aim to create a safe space, wherein women are free to express themselves, to borrow from each other and to collaborate artistically. The focus of these workshops will be on women’s experience, both shared and individual, and women’s voices, from the past to the present.

Dates and times for workshops:

Friday 6 April                        6pm – 8pm 

Thursday 12 April                 3pm – 5pm 

Saturday 14 April                  1pm – 3pm  

Thursday 19 April                 10am – 12 midday  

Tuesday 24th April               4pm – 6pm 

Friday 27 April                       6pm – 7pm  (performance)

All at the Adelaide City Library, Rundle Place, Rundle Mall, Adelaide.
