Poetic Interpretation: The Body and the Word

Unitary workshops for College, High School and Vocational Training students.
Caixa Forum Madrid & Sevilla.

Taught by: Laura Suárez


In this workshop the students, along with an actor, will work together the music of the poem, the tone of voice, the gesture of the verses and will appreciate the way words have to convey feelings when we perform them with the precise rhythm, diction and punctuation. Through a selection of poems from different registers, they will learn to listen to the poet’s voice and interpret it with emotion.

• Identify the elements of language and words that serve to convey feelings.
• Interpret and decipher the poet’s symbology through observation and reflection.
• Enjoy cultural experiences and creations.
