Remember 2014? Four sold-out one-person shows from some of the world’s best spoken word performers, in an intimate venue for one night each.
One Night Wonders is back with three new shows in 2015. Taking place in Melbourne’s distinctive Lithuanian Club, the season will kick off with the hypnotic Canadian word-wizard Tom Joyce.
Don’t miss the chance to see something never to be repeated.
“Tom Joyce gave us one of those really special moments: a series of poems all run together into a kind of whispered monologue; all delivered from memory; the man wandering from punter to punter like he was searching for someone; sometimes abandoning the microphone and later reclaiming it; his voice so hushed that it demanded the attention of everyone in the room… You can hear the exhalation of breath when he’s done.” wordplay.org.au
One Night Wonders is supported by the City of Melbourne’s Arts Grant Program.
The winner of The 2017 Melbourne Spoken Word Prize is Alan Pentland with his piece, ‘Darwin’s Human Race’ performed on Friday, December 1, 2017 at The Wheeler Centre.

Alan was a teen poet qualified as an architect and became a comedian. He ran Melbourne’s first stand up club Le Joke and was a core member of the award-winning TV comedy Fast Forward. His written work has won awards at international film festivals and in business. A radio ad sold lots of hot water systems.
In 2016 Alan returned to his roots, writing and performing spoken word in small sweaty venues. It’s become an exciting journey in words and ideas. Alan struggles however with grammar rhymes badly, and has no, idea where, to put commas.
Slamalamadingdong winner Nour Abouzeid performs ‘Talking Politics’ on November 30, 2017.
