Multicultural Voice- World in Words. A Perth Poetry Festival 2017 Event.
If poetry is the music of being human then it’s playing out loud at The Goods Shed this August as part of Perth Poetry Festival 2017. Belgian-born Tineke Van der Eecken weaves multiple languages and experiences of love and loss. Kate Wilson, an award-winning performance poet, invites you into her world of mermaids and creates a storm in a teacup with clever wordplay. Zainab Syed is an internationally touring Pakistani Spoken Word Artist who has performed in the US, UK, Europe, South Asia and Australia. The soundscapes of Iranian percussionist Saeed Danesh and multiinstrumentalist Rachel Wyder accompany the performances.
Includes an open mic (2-5 minutes each) for local poets who have poems (or parts of poems) in a language other than English.
Sat 12th August, 7-9pm
