Omniverse Spoken Word/Open Mic

Benjamin and Jamali present Omniverse a refined spoken word revue.

Since we’ve been a part of the poetry scene our family has grown exponentially. We are celebrating our brothers, sisters and non-binary siblings before Benjamin heads back to the country of the bard himself.

This night will include local headliners and a open mic for you all to share your beautiful words. We welcome and invite you to join us in the Brunswick Green’s squishy couches.

Headliners (more TBA)


Awale:
Awale is a multilingual writer & storyteller who shares stories through poetry. Born in Somalia, he grew up in the middle east & recently migrated to Australia.

He firmly believes that artists are the true guardians of our creativity, childhood spirit and imagination. An advocate for social justice and refugee rights, he believes in the power of sharing the human experience and spreading joy and happiness to others.

Saint Jorge:
Saint Jorge/Georgia Kartas is a writer and performance poet whose work explores feminism, sustainability, and the esoteric. In 2018 her first novella was published in The People’s Library, Tasmania, and she completed an artist residency at Centre Pompadour, France.

She has performed at Counihan Gallery, the Emerging Writers’ Festival, the Students of Sustainability Conference, and Dark Mofo. Georgia is currently working on her first poetry collection, ‘you wanna be famous? talk about your ethnicity and tack on some sex’, a series of modern-day experiences interpreted through Greek mythology.

Cainne:
Radical dreamer and truth seeker Cainne is a queer African American artist from Section 8, New York.

They write poetry compulsively, grappling the outward spiral of recovery from racial, sexual and institutionalised violence experienced by millions around the world.

They are abstract, existential and sharp in their rhythmic deliveries by nature and challenge themselves by sharing the fruits of their labor on stage.
