SHOW PONIES

Presented by Brisbane Writers Festival

Forget everything you know about poetry readings and get ready for a raucous evening of neon, costumes, sick beats and backup dancers.

Bewitching wordsmith Freya Sadgrove is bringing a troupe of Aotearoa New Zealand’s dopest and most dazzling poets to Brisbane for the first time. Forget everything you know about poetry readings and get ready for a raucous evening of neon, costumes, sick beats and backup dancers.

The Show Ponies are Chris Tse, Rebecca Hawkes, essa may ranapiri, Selina Tusitala Marsh, Anahera Gildea, and Tayi Tibble.

You’ll leave Show Ponies feeling equal parts bewildered and energised, and maybe even ready to write some high-octane performance poetry of your own.
