Presented with the support of Melbourne Spoken Word, Brisbane poet and performance artist Scott Wings is bringing you his spoken word-inspired physical theatre show, Colossi for one night only in Melbourne.
Limited space to book to avoid missing out. Doors open 7.30 for an 8pm start.
Scott Wings’ COLOSSI is a bigger, funnier, crazier exploration of performance, imagination and mental health than anything he’s ever done before. With a history of spoken word, theatre and hip-hop, the award winning Brisbane based entertainer has fused it all into a physical comedy of grand proportions. COLOSSI is a return to raw storytelling: no props, no tech, just unadulterated fun and imagination – with Scott’s trademark social commentary firmly in place. COLOSSI is the story of Scott and his imaginary friend Jack. They battle trolls and ride dragons, rap with fairies and eat tacos, but when the titular COLOSSI stomp through, Scott can’t find the right words to defeat them and escapes into denial and regret. A powerful one-man show by one of Australia’s most celebrated performers, COLOSSI is an event that will change how you perceive stand-alone performance and leave you breathless with the potential for imagining.
One of Australia’s leading performance poets, entertainers and funny men, Scott Wings, has launched himself on stages throughout the country. A visceral, heart warming, dramatic and subtle performer, Scotty has constructed a diverse style like no other performer in the country. Once known as Darkwing Dubs, in 2013 Scotty changed his stage-name to accommodate a growing fan base of all backgrounds.
