Singapore International Storytelling Festival 2014
1 – 9 September / The Arts House, 1 Old Parliament Lane
The 2014 Singapore International Storytelling Festival (SISF) focuses on the adaptation of stories across various forms and languages. It marks the Bard's 450th anniversary with a performance and masterclass that examines Shakespeare's sources and the translation of his works into the spoken form.
TURNING STORIES TO SLAM!
6 September / 10.00am – 12.00pm / The Arts House
In this interactive workshop, participants can expect to grasp a background into the global slam poetry movement and explore the dimensions to story slam.
The workshop will start with some examples of slam poetry in action and then focus on practical and performance opportunities to perform within a mock slam setting.
Come ready with pen and paper and try your hand at slam poetry by identifying a key issue – either in a personal story or a folktale – and converting that story into a slam poem.
