Being creative with words can be a lot of fun, a good way to explore our thoughts and feelings, and a release. And creating something from nowhere gives a lovely sense of achievement.
Our workshops focus on spoken word. We may create short scripts, prose or poetry to share; and short video clips on our mobile phones.
We look at structuring a story, creating characters, dialogue, editing and sharing. Methodology is through creative games and activities. Suitable for beginners, we sometimes work in teams with the creative activities. Everyone is involved.
Robin has been a community playwright and poet over many years, and brings his experience with a sense of playfulness.
The Crikey Mikey series are about a good boy that everyone thinks is naught when he is just using his initiative and understanding of the world. This World of ours is full of wonder and things to be explored. It is full of magic!
We give presentations to adults and children based on the water project in Ghana, and can talk about community projects that we have been involved in including the Power of the Breath, Diabetes, and Ethiopia and the World Laughter Master.
We've some happy poems, some which are sad, some with props and some where the audience joins in! Poetry readings are up to 45 minutes. Suitable for adults. Some of Robin's poems are:
I have hair (despite what you see in the photo)!
Circle Dance - an award winning poem about Auschwitz Birkenau
The irritating train conductor on the 11.30 to Euston
Oh chocolate bar!
Fruit - A political perspective
