New stories from the notebooks of Magic Steven
Magic Steven is a Melbourne-based performer whose work is best described as dead-pan not-comedy. Long-form beat poetry, autobiographical storytelling and a one-sided conversation with Magic Steven are also not incorrect descriptors.
He has performed as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Fringe Festival in Melbourne, and recently at Dark Mofo in Tasmania.
“This deadpan, under-the-radar comedy of storytelling ascends to a superlative estimation of the conditions of human connection.” Peril Magazine
“Comedy gold.” The Age
“He’s just working through some stuff.” Herald Sun
“Unusual and absorbing… Strangely engaging… Very rewarding.” Theatre Press
“Curiously seductive, odd, funny and refreshingly unique.” Farrago
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.
