Center For Poetry, Poetic Drama and the Spoken Word
The purpose of the Harold Clurman Center for Poetry, Poetic Drama and the Spoken Word is to explore the relationship between the actor and dramatic language, to celebrate dramatic and poetic language as a necessary but perhaps underappreciated aspect of the actor’s art and craft, and to open channels of communication between poets, playwrights, actors, directors, voice specialists, and critics in order to better understand issues of written and spoken language and the relationship between them. The Board of Advisors includes literary critic Harold Bloom, poet John Ashbery, poet Grace Schulman, and voice experts Cicely Berry, Andrew Wade, and Deborah Hecht.
The Harold Clurman Poetry Reading Series
The Harold Clurman Poetry Reading Series brings great poets to the Studio to read their work and, if interested, discuss their artistic process. Poetry readings are free and open to the public.
