Free Silly: Practicing Presence and Play in Spoken Word
In this workshop we will play with clown theory and clown games in an attempt to help us peel away the “performer’s mask” we often present to audiences when performing spoken word and we will practice and play being more present as humans in front of an audience. We will explore our “body of delight” (everyone has one) and look at how this can infuse our poems and our performance with new perspectives. Please wear comfortable clothing and come prepared to move and be still including lying on the floor and laughing out loud. Be willing to be seen as silly.

The Cultch recently underwent major renovations, which included increasing accessibility for people with disabilities.
All areas but the balcony are wheelchair accessible. You can purchase tickets at the lowered counter outside, then enter the main space via the wide automatic door. Once inside, there is a vestibule leading into the main open-concept lobby. Continuing on, you will find three washroom options: a fully wheelchair accessible single stall gender-neutral washroom, and two gendered washrooms each with a wheelchair accessible stall. Staff are friendly and able to assist in a variety of ways.
There is no designated wheelchair accessible parking, but there is street parking around the neighbourhood. As well, there are two parking spots that can be used at the rear of the building. We suggest that people call the box office ahead of time to reserve access to these spaces. There is wheelchair accessible transit within 2 blocks, and bicycle lock-ups outside.
Optional: If you have any questions, concerns, additions or corrections regarding this accessibility audit please email firstname.lastname@example.org
