L’atelier slam comme exemple de relation d’interdépendance et de complémentarité entre l’écriture et l’oralité

Abstract : Current research on oral language in the school context shows that it is most often regarded as being in the service of reading and writing. This is also what the term “writing workshops”, which refers to slam workshops, would also tend to suggest, relegating the oral skills to the secondary level. However, slam poetry is precisely an activity that allow us to think about the relationship between writing and oral language in a different way. Indeed, slam poetry is intended to be claimed. Therefore, it is written to be said and heard. Consequently, the writing must be entirely directed towards its oral delivery and its rhythmic setting. However, if the writing work is totally dependent on the oral message to be produced, the reciprocal is also true. As writing work is an essential step towards the oral performance, it is designed and calculated in such a way as to allow the voice and body to bring it to life. Taking examples from slam workshops conducted in a school context in recent years, this article aims at demonstrating that writing and orality are linked by a relationship of interdependence and complementarity and not a relationship of competition or opposition.
