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.
POSTY Poetry & Spoken Word Special Delivery is a new fortnightly open mic event hosted by Hamish Danks Brown a.k.a. Danksta Downunder. All welcome to distribute and sort their poetry on stage and to deliver it in any language. The Post is well located on the corner of Brighton Road and Inkerman Street. If you’re coming from North of the Yarra catch the number 3 or 67 trams from Swanston Street and get out at Stop 34 right outside the pub. It’s a very warm and welcoming venue with good food and drinks.
Thabani Tshuma performing ‘Newton’s Apple,’ which received an honourable mention at The 2018 Melbourne Spoken Word Prize.
Thabani Tshuma was born and raised in Zimbabwe but has been globe-hopping for the greater part of the last decade and as such, considers himself somewhat of a cultural nomad. Whilst writing for as long as he can remember, he’s only actively engaged in the Melbourne Spoken word scene this past year. Thabani’s poetry is an aperture through which he views his world and the way he interacts in relation to others. Thabani studies journalism with the aspiration of immortalizing himself by leaving a dent in the literary world.
Rhiann Isaacs performing ‘Black on Both Sides,’ which received an honourable mention at The 2018 Melbourne Spoken Word Prize.
Rhiann Isaacs is an outspoken Afro-Guyanese poet that has nurtured a love for words and storytelling from a young age. Rhiann’s pieces are explorative narratives that mainly centre around identity, Pan-African issues and mental health. As a rising artist, she brings energy and passion to the stage as she treats each poem as living art pieces that deserve to take up space. Expect transparency and straight forward expression from beginning to end.
