Stage Ready: Edit, Memorise & Perform Your Poetry
a spoken word masterclass with LUKA LESSON

This is a workshop that delves deep into the process of taking written work, refining it, embodying the words and then performing them on stage, in front of humans, effectively. This workshop is about facing our fears and short­-circuiting years of doubts. It is about coming out on top, full of confidence and with fire in our lungs.

This class is hands-­on: every person will be given their time to shine, receive direct feedback and then shine again. With almost 10 years of experience as an internationally touring poet and performer, and 12 in addition as a workshop facilitator, Luka Lesson brings tips, tricks and advice very few poets can. Each poet must bring at least one poem (two to three minutes long) written but not yet edited / memorised to work with.

This course is suitable for people who are beginners, and for those who have been writing for a long time. This course is also targeted at those with no prior performing experience, and spoken word artists in need of new tips and tricks. Maximum 25 pax only.

Copies and editions of Luka Lesson’s body of work will be on sale after the masterclass. Also, see him in action later that evening alongside poets Marylyn Tan and Hamid Roslan in NEW TONGUES / NEW WORKS (4 May 2019, Saturday, 7.30pm till late, Sing Lit Station, $5 / entry).

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Luka Lesson is an Australian-born poet and rap artist of Greek heritage. Luka’s work engages with the mythology of his family’s homeland, the fiercely political and the vulnerably introspective. An author of two independently published collections, as well as two full­-length recorded albums, Luka has had work commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, poems published in a number of international anthologies, and toured with the likes of Dr Cornell West (USA), Nahko & Medicine for the People (USA), Akala (UK) & Shane Koyczan (Canada).

Luka runs his own poetry retreat on the Greek island of Rhodes every year (www.rhodespoetryretreat.com) and has always used education programs as a form of activism and social change in schools and universities worldwide. His poem “May Your Pen Grace The Page” will appear on Australian English curriculums from 2019 onwards.
