NCPA Reference Library
Workshop by Dr. Omkar Bhatkar
The NCPA Library in collaboration with Metamorphosis Theatre and Films
Live performance not only complements but unlocks new meanings to and perspectives on the written word. No two performances of the same work can be exactly the same.
This workshop looks at poetry as a performative piece, with emphasis on enunciation, tone and pauses, and how delivery unlocks new layers of meaning that otherwise would not have been found. Applicants can bring along up to three works of poetry they feel strongly about and at the end of the workshop they will have found ease of performing at least one of their poems. The poems can be in any language but the medium of instruction of the workshop will be English.
The workshop is conducted by Dr. Omkar Bhatkar who has been rendering poetry into stage performances for the last 10 years and has created memorable stage presentations with the poetry of Pablo Neruda, Kamala Das, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Anne Carson, Narayana Guru, Shah Abdul Latif and Sylvia Plath.
