Dancing With Words


Sat Apr 15 2023 - Sat Dec 16 2023



Build your creative writing talents through guided movement routines, role plays and writing exercises, and apply them to the composition of expressive and poetic scenes, stories and poems for the stage, a book or an artistic project. This workshop series offers you a hands-on practice of creative writing, with a focus on the contemporary stage and an in-depth exploration of sounds, words, sentences and texts in English and other languages. They offer an inclusive space that encourages participants of any linguistic background to explore their awareness of the relationship between spoken word, written language and physical body from their own cultural perspective. In a fun and relaxed environment, you will be encouraged to be an active creator by devising scenes, discovering movements to express spoken and written sentences, crafting texts, developing social connections and thinking creatively. The workshop is entirely conducted by the insights, creations and material generated by the group, and guided by the directorship of Priscila Da Cunha, who has facilitated creative writing and theatre experiences in schools, community groups and arts organisations in Brazil and Australia for the last 15 years. She has a Masters Degree in Comparative Literature, has published academic articles and edited several anthologies of short stories for young people.
