La Mama Poetica October: The Poetry of Grief + special guests Anita Patel & Barry Dickins
October 11, 2022 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
La Mama Poetica October features The Poetry of Grief curated by research poet Dr Katrin Gerber, where music, poetry and research meet. These poems, crafted from interviews with bereaved older adults, will take you on a journey through the ups and downs of grief and challenge the notion that grief has an expiry date. Poems will be performed by actors Marylla Powell and Dennis Coard and accompanied by MSO violinist Sarah Curro. In addition, we feature Canberra poet Anita Patel reading from ‘Petals Fall’ and the legendary author and playwright Barry Dickins presenting new work.
