The Masterclasses!

In Spring 2016, Rally & Broad ran two weekend long masterclasses at the Scottish Poetry Library, with two of the most acclaimed poet-performers working in the UK today – Francesca Beard and Ross Sutherland.

The aim was to respond to a call for development for spoken word, poetry and performance in Scotland, to provide opportunities for artists from all backgrounds to explore new ways of presenting and writing for the stage, and to learn from some of the best around. In February, Francesca’s workshop focussed on ways to explore, clarify and expand the onstage persona, how we engage with audiences, and how to develop ideas into full blown shows. In April, Ross looked at turning traditional notions of spoken word upside down and inside out; of fraying the edges of the poem and letting them bleed into areas of broadcasting, videopoetry, installations and even conceptual art. A LOT of fun was had by all…

The Event!

On Thursday 14 April, we’re delighted to present short performances from the participants, showcasing some of the new skills and explorations that they took away from the weekends. It’s a cornucopia of exciting new voices in Scotland – come and see what they’ve got!
