8PM at the Thirsty Dog, 469 K’rd

Guest Poet: Genevieve McLean

picture-9236Genevieve McClean emerged as a poet in the early nineties, reading in Auckland and then all over the country.

Her spoken word has informed her other work in different forms, -as a singer, actor, and filmmaker, and with particular note: her solo play Word (a play on words 1998), and The New Language of Stasis in Exile (a collaborative poststructural lecture performance at the Uni 2004).

In 2006 after completing a period of interdisciplinary arts tuition at Unitec, she toured America as a poet with an eye out for different forms of presentation.  In performance her poetry has developed to uphold experimentalism, improvised poetry; sound poetry, and collaborative musical spoken word.

Guest Musician: Todd Laurence
