The #BARS Workshop is a lab series created by Rafael Casal & Daveed Diggs that investigates the intersection between contemporary verse and Theater. Sarah Kay is one of a few visiting mentors who leads a master class on storytelling as part of the curriculum, and has participated in the culminating projects: digital medleys of short verse vignettes written and performed by the workshop cohort, tied together by a common theme, all scored live and shot in one take in front of a live audience. See the first #Bars Medley here and the second #Bars Medley here. Find out more about the class here.
