Words Out Loud is going out with a slow apocalypse as the year’s program draws to a close in November. The theme for the night is ‘eroding confidence’ — make of that what you will, or ignore it altogether.
As a special treat, the night will feature advance readings of work from the Weathering the Future art exhibition, taking place at Backspace Gallery from December 6 to 23. The official launch is on December 8 — all welcome. Click here for details.
Five-minute open mic spots will be available as usual on the night, for poets, writers and storytellers wanting to share their work out loud!
The November 15 event will be held at the Printers Room, in the basement of Sebastiaans at the corner of Mair and Lydiard streets. The full menu will be available, as well as a $20 two-course meal deal . Doors open about 6pm if you’d like to dine early.
Enter via Mair St. Take in the air in the beer garden. Enjoy the show from couches, the tables or a seat by the bar. Gold coin donation appreciated. Performances begin from 7pm and run till about 9.30pm.
This is a great opportunity to road test new material, celebrate a success or share some inspiration, or simply enjoy a diverse range of spoken word.
