Blah and spoken word alumni Salena Godden returns to our podium with her new experimental piece, Mrs Death Misses Death, a rousing celebration about appreciating life and the short time that we have to live it. Featuring the private correspondence, poems and diaries of Mrs Death, this live performance is a collaboration of a new novel and album, with fiction and poetry by Peter Coyte.
John Berkavitch: Pokeman G.O.A.T
John Berkavitch was never a gamer. He was a troll in gaming chatrooms. But somehow, after becoming hooked on Pokemon Go, he has risen to the top 1% of players in the world. In this newly developed spoken word performance, John explores the inherent tribalism and toxicity of augmented reality gaming as he attempts to become the very best. A story told through a combination of spoken word, poetry and immersive projection that draws on physical elements of contemporary circus performance. This truly is a story about one man’s quest to be the very best.
