Artistic Director Regina Klenjoski will be facilitating a movement and writing workshop with Los Angeles poet Jennie Linthorst at the Kansas Literacy Festival. In Poetry in Motion: Making Connections Through Writing and Moving, these two artists will share their methodology for integrating creative writing and embodied movement for students. Jennie guides participants in developing an autobiographical poem based on prompts from the “I am From …” poem format. Participants explore personal narratives through the home, people, foods, music, and sensory experiences of their childhood.  They then choose their favorite stanza and Regina guides them through an inclusive, gestural movement exploration that encourages the embodiment of those memories through collaboration in small group expressive dances.  The session ends with poem sharing and reflection, a critical part of the literacy and movement practice that deepens the connections made between personal identity, community, the world and art.
