Spoken Word Workshop & Performance with Cassidy Fiona “FieFie” LaColla

Spoken Word Workshop & Performance with Cassidy Fiona “FieFie” LaColla

The first hour of the workshop will focus on writing and editing poetry, and the second hour of the workshop will focus on performing poetry. According to Fiefie, it takes more than just an ability to write to be a slam poet. It takes certain dramatic skills specific to spoken word as well. For example, one of the biggest flaws in inexperienced performers, Fiefie notes, is that they don’t know how to express the emotions of the piece in their tones of voices and body language. 

Following the workshop, there will be a 90 minute spoken word performance on Thursday, July 27th at 9pm. This performance will be headlined by Fiefie, but workshop participants will have an opportunity to perform their poems as well using the skills they learned in the workshop. Sign up now before space runs out, because there is a cap at 20 participants! The price of the workshop will be $50 and includes a ticket to the performance. (No tickets for Auditors.)

After discovering her new great love for poetry in that little bar poetry slam, Fiefie immediately embarked on a long and rewarding journey in which she was, at one point, the youngest nationally competing spoken word poet. Additionally, she was the youngest person to be featured at the Midtown International Fall Variety Festival in an hour long sold out spoken word show called “A Night With Fiefie.” At 18 years old, she currently helps run and is a major performer at the poetry organization Suffern Poetry. She also made it to 2017 National Poetry Slam finals and will compete this upcoming August in Denver, Colorado.
