Since 2001 I have given workshops in German and English for youth, adults, teachers, writers, artists & other professionals for schools, universities and other cultural institutions.
Poetry Slam/ Spoken Word
How to present a text on stage
In my workshops I combine elements of classical creative writing with performance and voice training. I believe that text and performance are closely connected. Through performance it is sometimes possible to get a better understanding of the text and to identify text problems. The combination of text and performance exercise is escpecially helpful for everyone who is afraid to speak in public.
