What It Is.
The SPEAKeasy Performers’ Group meets every other month, similar to the READeasy Writers’ Group, at the Forest Café. It’s a group for writers of every kind from all levels of experience to polish their (existing or just hatching) performance skills in a supportive group of peers. Whether you’ve never performed before or have been doing it for years, we’ll offer some skills to help you develop further. It is a special (and free) opportunity to try different ways of putting your words across in the most effective way possible while on a stage.
How We Work.
Every two months, we run a different workshop around performance skills – in a cozy café and their quiet basement. Each time, there are some people who’ve been to the workshops before, and some who are there for the first time. Each member emails in advance to sign up, so that we can plan the workshop with the right amount of material. We will provide pieces to perform – so no need to bring your own work. Together we will learn some basic physical performance, voice, and mic skills – and polish the ones we may already have. All skill levels and degrees of experience are more than welcome. We learn from each other.
- To attend a session, just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the next date. At latest, the night before.
- Show up at the Forest Café in time for 3pm in 8 March, grab a tea or coffee, and join the group.
- The discussions within the workshops are really informal, and based on our own experiences – so don’t feel you have to be an expert to have a say.
- Come along, and we will try out some different approaches to performing and chat about how to develop our voice and performance skills. (Let us know if you’re not going to be able to attend, so that we can make your space available to someone else.) Bring a notepad! Bring questions! Bring your wonderful mind!
See you there!
