Three years ago, shit got real. Poets took wrestling classes and wrestlers got their poems on, as Sing Lit Station and Grapple Max kicked off the world's first professional wrestling - performance poetry hybrid performance. Literary and literal violence merged as wrestlers became the avatars of spoken word poets as we saw metaphysical battle after battle go down: Raffles vs Farquhar; page poetry vs stage poetry; English vs Singlish.
This year, it's happening again - 29-30 Nov at Aliwal Arts Center - Sing Lit Body Slam: 2 Much 2 Soon. Early bird tickets are going for $35 until 17 Nov (tonight!!!), full price tix are $40, and student tix are $25. We're running this as a fundraiser for Sing Lit Station, which is an IPC, so if you put down your IC and personal details you get 250% tax shield off the value of the tickets. Catch it while you can!
