WRITING AND PERFORMING
“I hid the ending and forgot where.
That seemed like a good start."
For seven days we immerse ourselves in a sea of language. We allow ourselves to be seduced by its fluidity, its vibrant rhythm, its sharpness, its breathtaking depth... We create space to tinker with our own material, but we also allow ourselves to be challenged and amazed by cross-pollination with other workshops.
And this time too, we step back on stage with our lyrics. Experience is absolutely not required here, we work step by step towards an honest but unforgettable show moment.
Do you doubt whether your thoughts are poems? Where is your literary strength? Are you a razor-sharp speed writer or a patient puzzler? Curious about the stage?
Under the inspiring guidance of Stijn Vranken, you will explore how language drives us, how it invents reality in our hands and how it embraces the reader.
