Saturday, January 23 from 2:00 to 3:30 pm
Join English professor, playwright, and former slam poet, Takeo Rivera, for an exploration of the choreopoem theatrical form, its contours of vulnerability, and its potential for connection. Takeo Rivera is a playwright and assistant professor of English at Boston University. Between Poetry and Performance is a virtual workshop series that invites writers of all experience levels to reimagine poetry through theater and film. How can these two mediums help us reclaim our voices, speak our minds, and connect with others? How do we push our words into motion, and thrust poetry towards action?
