Part of FIRESIDE and Bleach* Festival 2021
Listen Up! A wild bunch of free-wheeling wordsmiths of wisdom are hitting the stage for a night of slam poetry with a difference.
Hosted by award-winning comedian Jenny Wynter, Gran Slam Live stars a razor-sharp collective of poets between 65 and 99 years young, who will battle it out to take home a cash and publishing prize.
Special guests include, Matt Hsu, a Taiwanese-Australian composer and musician who will create a one-man ‘Obscure Orchestra’ with instruments and sounds from around the world, providing a one-of-kind soundtrack to cheer on our one-of-a kind poets.
Gran Slam Live promises to be an entertaining night out of musical delights, poetic storytelling, intimate reflections and hilarious insights into life, ageing, freedom, riding skateboards, setting sail into a misty sea of metaphors.
Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts, as part of FIRESIDE and Bleach* Festival
