The monthly Openmouth poetry sessions at the Velvet Lounge in Mt Lawley
have been eating at the face of perths poetic culture.
Come get a dose of perth's freshest poets in the flesh. Be One!
This Thursday 27th July - 8pm
VELVET LOUNGE: CNR BEAUFORT AND WALCOTT STS MT LAWLEY
Bring a bag of werds. Enter/Consume. Cmon feel the noise.
Poems. Yeah Poems. Poems read. Poems performed. Poems desecrated. Poems recited and spat...
Poems burnt and shed nervously. Real poems in your smiley face. Poems with sweet guts and legs and blood and gravy. Poems with sex and drugs and nudity. Poems with music and soundscape.
Poems with lilting beats n bones. Vegan poems. Extreme poems. Poems whispered, poems sang. Normal poems. Radical poems. Rhyming poems.
See OPENMOUTH feature article in the Program:
"The definition of what a poem might consist of is kept broad and loose
at the Openmouth sessions, as was keenly demonstrated last month when
one wandering bard performed a piece entitled The Least I Can Say,
involving only silence and the drawing of an empty box in the air.
Poetry can be structured and formal, or it can be spontaneous and
amorphous; basically anyone who is prepared to put their words into the
concert is applauded regardless of methodology or subject matter. You
don’t have to be high-brow, faux-brow or any other sort of brow to
participate in the Openmouth sessions, just speak loud enough to
overrule the soft background jazz and you’ll find yourself a poet.."
Featuring Slam winners from June's Openmouth:
Lily and Tiffany.
Open readers/performers throughout the night.
