OneTaste Workshop: Story Writing with Polarbear
22 May 2012
Hackney Picturehouse, Hackney Attic, 270 Mare St, Hackney, London, E8 1HE
It’s OneTaste Workshop time!
How many you’s have you got? Who
we are behind closed doors is different to who we are outside. How many versions of a person are there?
Come and play with Polarbear as he leads character based creative writing exercises to explore what goes into making up a person and the many roles they play.
Polarbear is not a bear at all, but a Brummie, raised on hip-hop and Arthur Scargill, who writes stories and sometimes talks them on stage. His work has featured on BBC Radio 1, 3, 4 and 6, and he has performed around the world from Kuala Lumpur to California. He leads writing and performance projects nationally and internationally and can usually be found in the kitchen at house parties.
The yarn-spinning Brummie – The Times
You must go and listen to
this man’s work – John Hillcock, XFM
His minimal style and unsettlingly straightforward and blunt lyricism make him shine out of the dross of a lot of spoken word – Dazed & Confused
