Workshop: Exploring the Abstract Through Concrete Poetic Detail

About January 3rd 6PM Workshop:
Exploring the Abstract through Concrete Poetic Detail (Presented by Tomas J. Stanton)
In this workshop, participants will learn to express the abstract (Love, Faith, Fear, Joy) through concrete imagery and poetic devices. In addition, we will explore how poetry and narrative structure connect to create poetic narratives. (Presented by Tomás J. Stanton)

About January 3rd 7PM Outdoor Performance: “Turn the Page.” It’s time for new beginnings or worn-out endings. Flip over a new leaf in your old book. It’s time to see what has been and wonder about the future. It’s time to make plans that may or may not be broken. In this storytelling performance for adult audiences, our tellers will tell both true and should-be-true tale and personal narratives. Held outdoors so dress warmly. Tellers include Tomás J. Stanton, Mark Goldman, Sean Buvala and others.


StoryRise returns for the 2018/2019 season, sponsored by the Goodyear Arts and Culture Commission and The Small-Tooth-Dog Publishing Group, presenting 5 nights of adult storytelling and hands-on workshops for all performing artists.  StoryRise is held on the first Thursday of each month through March.
