    I Want to Know What it Says, The Sea
    A poetry workshop with no paper and no pens with JL Williams
    Saturday 10 November, 2 – 3.30pm
    Cooper Gallery


    As part of the Event Series for Cooper Gallery’s exhibition Bow Gamelan Ensemble: Great Noises That Fill The Air, poet and writer JL Williams leads an oral poetry workshop with no paper and no pens.

    Participants will be taken back to the earliest origins of the performed word to create their own improvised, oral poetry of the body. Exploring movement, sound, improvisation, individual and collaborative performance, you will draw on your deepest reservoirs to create poetry of the heart, deep belly poetry, breath and bones poetry, spur of the moment poetry, poetry launched down the river, poetry floated out to sea, poetry lost on the wind.

    This workshop takes an interdisciplinary tangent to the work of Bow Gamelan Ensemble; their work in performance, improvisation and experimentation with materials available to hand, for this workshop the voice, the body.
