Recent performances – October 2017

Readings from One Last Border and Translations
Poetry on the Move, 2017, Border Crossings: A Festival of Poetry
14-21 September 2017, University of Canberra, Canberra

‘Twenty Boats’ (One Last Border, Ginninderra Press 2016)
will be performed 29 September to 14 October 2017, in Under Sedation, The Street, Canberra

Under Sedation: Canberra verse remixed embraces compositions from one of the most vibrant poetic hubs in the nation. This new theatre work weaves together the old and the new, sung and spoken, published and drafted, applauded and unknown, the earnest and irreverent. Under Sedation transforms performance poetry from slam to stage to explore what may hurt or pacify. Under Sedation will not mark the first time that poetry has gone to the theatre but will see The Street transform local poetry into a bold, contemporary production to continue and enrich the dialogue that Canberra poets and songwriters have so generously brought to our community.

Featuring Ben Drysdale and Ruth Pieloor
Collected, Edited and Directed by Adele Chynoweth
