Coined by the late Ntozake Shange in 1975 with her award-winning choreopoem for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf, the choreopoem as a genre has captured the bodies of performance artists across the world. Creating and producing a choreopoem is more than choreographing text–it includes poetry, dance, music, art, yoga, podcast clips, audience interaction, and more. Guided by Monica Prince, choreopoem scholar and creator, participants will learn the structure and execution of the choreopoem as a form, potentially starting their own, while championing its roots in Black expression, suffering, and pleasure.
