The Official Wrap Party for Live Below The Line are excited to present POETS BELOW THE LINE. A SHOWCASE OF CREATIVE HUNGER LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE!!
The spoken word works of ten poets will salivate your minds. Their words are those written with bodies on the line: with empty hands, and starving hearts.
POETS BELOW THE LINE is a creative collaboration, mining poets from all over our local scene to make global poverty speak. Some hail from youthproject Rising Voices, others from acclaimed performers South Auckland Poets Collective, more from performance poetry collective The Literatti and others are fiercely independent voices.
All are united by a single mantra: to embody a creative response to the global poverty crisis, by challenging themselves to make poetry from below the line, surviving on a meagre $2.25 a day for five days in September.
This is the pen under duress; this is the cortex under pressure. This is poetry below the line.
