Common Ground Returns: Showcase

You are invited to a free live performance of new, raw and powerful poems by a group of emerging spoken word poets.

The poets will take to the stage in a showcase performance as part of the Blue Room Theatre’s ‘Voices’ program.

Under the guidance of performance artists Sukhjit Khalsa and Jessie Oliver, as well as Zainab Syed, the poets have been meeting weekly to develop their prose and performance skills. The showcase is a culmination of five weeks of the new poets building upon their spoken word poetry skills.

The workshops were presented by CAN, in partnership with Multicultural Arts Victoria to provide a platform for the voices of people from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.

“Hearing the Common Ground poets share their stories last year was amazing, they took us on a journey of love, life, loss and well, cricket, and, in sharing their unique experiences, we were reminded of our humanity and need for connectedness”, Sukhjit says of last year’s Common Ground showcase.

Arrive at The Blue Room Theatre from 6pm for light refreshments before the showcase begins at 6.30pm. It’ll be a night not to be missed!
