Feminist Poetry and Performance at The Fridge
The event kicks off with Barcelona's Jessica Hirst in a series of performance pieces exploring mental illness. Then, poets Molly Gaundry, Sarah Lawson and Mindy Nettifee will join Illum in a showcase of poems on relationships, identity, family and feminism. Illum says:
These writers are inspiring, fierce and fearless. Even if you have never been to a poetry show, you will leave this one remembering what it felt like when you first tried to write a poem. Maybe you will start again.
After the performance, head across 8th Street to Phase One for queeraoke. Not too bad for a Thursday, eh?
