The Power of Poetry is a 45-minute performance aimed at inspiring your students and learning about the world of poetry! This is a professionally recorded performance that can be streamed anywhere, any time!
An irreverent and wildly entertaining show, The Power of Poetry introduces students to poetry that contains some large ideas and lots of heart. This show follows a fractured attempt by the PIA troupe to present a show with their star actor, Candice; missing in action.
Will they still be able to convert what it is that makes poetry powerful when one of the troupe is a ring-in who knows nothing about poetry?
Who is secretly in love with one of the PIA team?
Will they be able to express how poetry can perfectly capture a moment, transform an opinion and bring about change? We’ll have to wait and see…! (Of course they can).
Be ready to be both entertained and inspired – and who knows there may even be a kiss at the end…!
Features poetry from a range of poets including Basho, Maya Angelou, Malcolm London, WH Auden, Peter Garrett, Khalil Gibran, Kathy Jetnil- Kijinerand, William Wordsworth.
- You’ll also receive our comprehensive Teacher’s Pack to support your lesson plans before and after you see the show!
