Workshop: Improvised Spoken Word
with Second City’s Asia Martin and Terrence Carey

Monday, January 21 6-8pm
@ Clifton Performance Theatre


PREACH! is a Chicago based improvised spoken word collective that infuse improvisation, spoken word and story telling. This workshop will explore all these mediums. This workshop will range from exercises that focus on individual storytelling—to have confidence in telling YOUR story—as well as ensemble based collaboration. Through this workshop, we ask you for three things, yourself, a journal and respect for the space and your scene partners.
