Celebrating the spoken word – poetry, storytelling, performances and workshop
Young People get involved!
Curtain up for half-term fun
The curtain will be going up at Taunton Library and The Brewhouse Theatre for a special collaboration over the February half-term.
Teenagers aged 13 to 18 can join in ‘Word Play’ – two masterclasses celebrating the spoken word through poetry, story-telling, performances and workshops.
Taking place on Wednesday 19 February from 10am to 5pm at both Taunton Library and the Brewhouse Theatre, tickets are just £5 for the day.
The ‘Story Through Song with Aisha Ali’ masterclass will offer a day of vocal play and songwriting. Participants can learn about rhythm and harmony, practice circle songs and draw on experiences to write and share songs.
The ‘Performance Poetry with Daniel Balla’ masterclass will offer a welcoming workshop to explore performance poetry, the chance to make new friends, collaborate, devise new pieces and jam together.
After attending the masterclass, the young people then take to the boards to perform their work on The Brewhouse stage before internationally renowned storytellers from StoryJam. The performance takes place on Thursday 20 February at 5.30pm.
