Buddy Wakefield and friends
A festive spoken word showcase of International Poetry Champions, headlined by the multiple slam winning, gloriously talented, inspirational USA poet Buddy Wakefield. Supported by Australian poet Erfan Daliri, plus more international acts TBC and hosted by our girl Mama Tokus.
Currently touring the world with his new show: Rilled Up and Wasted on Light, this is an opportunity to see one of the most renowned spoken word performers in the world! Buddy is the three-time world champion spoken word artist featured on NPR, the BBC, HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, ABC Radio National and most recently signed to Ani DiFranco’s Righteous Babe Records.
Living in the Tasmanian hinterlands, Erfan spends his days walking the pine forests surrounding his isolated cabin, at times going weeks between conversations with other human beings. Instead, Erfan prepares himself physically, mentally and spiritually for conversations with the collective consciousness, transcribing whatever chooses to flow.
