I had a great time at Word Box last Wednesday night. Word Box is an interactive spoken word event at Soul Box in Hindley Street in Adelaide. I premiered two new poems termites and tethered in the open mike segment (the first time I’d performed anything in over a year.) Other poets were Tracey Korsten, Ian Gibbins, Mike Hopkins, Karen Burns, Jill Wherry, Kerryn Tredrea, Kate Elder, Royce, Mark, Indigo and a few more I’ve forgotten. I also had the opportunity to brush up on my impro skills by joining in on a word-at-a-time story!
This was only the second ever Word Box event – thanks to compere Tracey Korsten. I hope it thrives. The Soul Box is a fantastic venue and should do well with the coming Fringe season. The next one is on Feb 13 – Valentine’s Eve.
