I’m not promising you’ll master Occitan lyric poetry from the high middle ages, but, in the spirit of the troubadours, we’ll explore how to bring words alive on the page and in oral storytelling.
Subjects include: movement, rhythm and rhyme in poetry and prose. How music and poetry, as well as spoken and written words, inform each other. Our themes will be chivalry and courtly love - what else!
The workshop is suitable for anyone who loves words in any form. No experience necessary. You don't need to book- just turn up. English and French speakers welcome. The workshop will take place in English, with simultaneous translation into French.
