Spoken Stage is a Community-based project led by artists Jody Wood and So Yeon Park with seniors from The Senior Welfare Center in Seoul, Korea. Concluding an intensive 12 week collaborative poetry-writing workshop in English, site-specific performances took place throughout the city of Seoul in Temporary Space Artist Residency, One Circle Community Theatre, and The Senior Welfare Center of Seoul.
Based on themes of discovering new purpose regarding functionality of the body, place in the family, and roles in society, Spoken Stage provides a public platform for a community of senior citizens to develop and perform their own personal, poetry-based narratives in a site-specific installation environment.
