The women of Thea-Poets from Australia to Jamaica and the UK have performed their poetry, and live literature across the country and internationally, moving audiences with their searing humour and honesty, distilling a brand of rich multicultural identities and experiences.
The show was devised and developed by the poets lead by the inspirational director and writer Roger Robinson.
Quotes from previous shows
“Wow! Totally gutsy women, you rock! ” Audience comments, SPIT-LIT literature festival performance, 2007
“A moving show and fantastically varied; showing flawed people and situations without being brutal nor self-indulgent” Audience comments from The Space Theatre, performance 2008
“A truly remarkable evening and a brilliant experience for an audience member. The sweet, the sad, the funny, the emotional poetry all wrapped up in one package. As a live event it has charm and character as it moves in and out of the performative and makes you feel like you are right there, in the moment, with every word uttered.”
Mari Rettedal, The Space Theatre, 2008
