By the end of this workshop, you are officially #MadeInBenchLab and will know: 1) the right way to exercise your voice to maximize vocal capabilities, 2) how to project your voice clearly and eloquently, 3) the techniques in presenting Malay poetry through body language, facial expressions and voice in order to evoke different emotions, 4) the different themes in Malay poetry and how to express them and 5) how to construct your own Malay poem.

BenchLab Talented Instructor: Kris Karmila. You’ll be learning from a natural all-around performer who you might have seen on TV or heard her voice on the radio! She started writing poems at the age of 8 and became more passionate about poetries as she grew older. She has attended both local and international workshops on writing poem, pantun, syair, drama scripts and many more. Ranging from local companies to schools to individuals, Kris Karmila has taught many on how to write and recite poetries. In this workshop, she hopes her students will be able to find their own unique way of delivering poems or simply, putting their thoughts across.
