Fong Tran

Spoken Word Artist Fong Tran joined us on September 8, 2018 for a terrific workshop and performance!

Fong introduced a great discussion with unique activities that encouraged us – as performers and speakers – to take ownership of our physical space.

He discussed the importance of “claiming your space” as a performer, and talked about how words, ideas, connotations, and other details can give rise to our bodily language. Fong also shared a few of his own poems, allowing our guests to workshop one of them to discuss ways he could approach the poem differently, while helping us consider strategies for writing/performing our own work in unexpected, fresh ways.
