The Event

Are you a writer, performer, or storyteller who wants to enrich your story and voice? Then Page to Podiumwith Siphokazi Jonas is for you! In the I SPEAK IN THIS VOICE performance workshop, you are you are invited to explore the avenues which poetry unlocks in the relationship between performance and imagination. You will be challenged to ask yourself, what are the silences which keep me from speaking? Who is my first audience? How do I perform my story?
The Page to Podiumworkshop series is the brainchild of poet, writer, and performer, Siphokazi Jonas, who is based in Cape Town. Siphokazi holds a Masters Degree in English Literature and a BA degree in English and Drama from the University of Cape Town. She has eight years of experience as an English tutor and Teaching Assistant at the same institution. Her work as a performance poet has allowed her to travel across South Africa and as far afield as Los Angeles, California and Gainesville, Florida, USA. It is really her passion for unpacking the sheer humanity in us all, as well guiding the writer to think like both the reader and audience, which sets Page to Podiumapart. Her wholehearted approach inspires hope and creativity in all who encounter her teaching.
