24th Annual Theatre Forum: Thespian Rhymes and Rhythms - Intersections of Theatre and Poetry

Friday November 18 - Sunday November 20, 2022

Dear Theatre Forum Family,
Poetry is an artful manifestation of the most fundamental form of humanity: rhythm. Our heartbeat is the primal rhythm and the source of an inspiration that has become culture in dance, music and rhythmic language. When we experience rhythm, we connect to our primal selves. Creative artists have experimented with this powerful tool since the beginning of humanity, so let us take this opportunity to investigate how playwrights, actors and other theatre artists process rhythmic language, and why language artists are drawn to theatre.

As always, we offer talks, lectures and performances of renowned Theatre professionals and poets, as well as a workshop for students on Saturday, November 19th.
I am very excited to welcome you back to Round Top. After the past two years, our world is finally back in sinus rhythm, so let us enjoy this together!
See you in November!
–Sonja Bruzauskas
