Thrivin’ Ain’t Easy 101: Choreopoem Masterclass

Instructor: TS Hawkins


Monday, March 8, 6 – 7:30 PM

In a socio-political, media-driven climate, how can folx do to find peace and inspiration? Register for award-winning writer and performance artist TS Hawkins’s workshop, Thrivin’ Ain’t Easy 101: Choreopoem Masterclass, to investigate how to find your voice and achieve peace of mind through poetic activities. Presented by Theatre Exile, this 90-minute virtual workshop will instruct participants on how to poetically explore, discover and embrace their intersectional identities in a safe, creative environment. Thrivin’ Ain’t Easy 101 will be limited to 10-12 people and requires attendees to bring an original poem or writing sample under the theme of “self-discovery” that will be shared, as a collective choreopoem, at the end of the workshop.

TS Hawkins (they/them) is an international author and performance poet best known for their poetry masterclass, Thrivin’ Ain’t Easy, a series of courses that infuses health, wellness, and activism through poetry. In addition to publishing many written works, Hawkins has traveled the world delivering powerful onstage performances praised by major publications, including BroadwayWorld, Philly Voice, NPR, WHYY, and Chicago Tribune. Hawkins currently serves as the Education Director at Philadelphia-based theatre company Theatre Exile.
