Thabani Tshuma / Newton’s Apple

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.
