Event Details

Improvisers are great storytellers. Imagery and poetic techniques can be a brilliant way to draw our audiences into the story and scorch them with our sizzling play. In this online workshop, we will use tools crafted by great poets to shape and inspire our work. Imagery, rhyme and rhythm are all covered in a fun and accessible way.

We will crack open the poetic rhythm made famous by Shakespeare: iambic pentameter AND simplify the approach to freestyle rap. Discover how verbal limitations can set your work free.


(Monday) 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
