It’s time for the wildest poetry slam of the year! Join us for the ANARCHY SLAM! Poets are encouraged to break all the rules.
Costumes? Wear ’em.
Props? Bring ’em.
Music? Play it.
Time limits? Break ’em.
*please note, the host reserves the right to cut you off if you take the time limit thing too far – still gotta respect the audience*
But all that aside, the gloves are off! Sign up starts at 7:30 PM.
Let’s get anarchic! The evening will also feature a set from our dear friend, Elise Pallagi!
Elise Pallagi is a poet and multi-disciplinary performance artist and a member of the 2017 and 2018 Saskatoon Poetry Slam Team. Elise’s work focuses on her personal experience and struggles as a transgender woman growing up and living in the Canadian prairie. As a performer, Elise has been a featured artist at The Canadian Festival of Spoken Word, Regina Word Up, Tonight it’s Poetry, The Saskatoon Pride Festival and The Ness Creek Music Festival and has performed at numerous shows and open mics across Canada. Combining elements of Vaudeville, Burlesque, subversive politics and roller derby with slam poetry, she likes to convey emotional authenticity and relatability in her work, that both moves audiences and touches hearts and minds.
