BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! versus FEMINARTSY versus THE FESTIVALS!

IT IS THE TIME WHEN BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! FIGHTS THE YOU ARE HERE AND THIS YEAR YOU ARE HERE BRINGS THE NOTED FESTIVAL!

AND BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! HAS INVITED FEMINARTSY!
And Feminartsy said yes!
IT’LL BE A BLOODBATH.

You no doubt have many questions, here are answers.

FIRST!
BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! is the poetry slam, your poetry slam, the poetry slam that gives you a stage, two microphones, many audience, poets, The Master of Conflict, a surprising amount of MCs, sound, scores, with score adding, by The Score Adder, plus a sacrificial poet.

ALL FOR PRIZES AND GLORY AND A CURRICULUM VITAE ENTRY AND DRINKING.

ALL FOR YOUR 2 MINUTES OF POETRY!

Second
BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! has teamed up with Feminartsy, Noted and YouAreHere in a grand battle of poetry conflict and word showcasing with bonus mystery act!

Third
PRIZES!

Fourth
BRING YOUR WORDS AND YOU TO BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT!

Five!
FEATURE ACTS IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER

Representing You Are Here as part of I Hate You for Sentimental Reasons is:

Nicola Lambert!
Bare-knuckle boxing's illegal. Corporal punishment's out of fashion. Project Mayhem came to nothing. What recourse is left to a city in need of improvement but to invite its brightest minds to verbally excoriate its flaws? Throughout You Are Here experts are delivering short, bloody, insight-laden calls to arms.

In this episode first Nicola Lambert, artist and arts facilitator, questions the cultural inclusiveness of the ACT's arts programs!

Don't miss this pointed brutalisation of your beloved capital's shortcomings!

From Feminartsy and Noted we have:

Beige Brown is Australia’s foremost feminist performance poet. Her permutative sound poetry ingests uncertainty into the phallogentric project of mainstream literary culture, exploding the big edifice to spurt many smaller openings. A past honoured guest at Crack & Griffringe, she is highly regarded by discerning members of Australia’s literary cognoscenti.
And there will be an additional surprise guest!

WE WILL TELL YOU NOTHING OF THEM.

So remember, your original material, no props, no music, 2 minutes, judges, judging, yelling, prizes, glory, all in a pub! In the Phoenix Pub, East Row, Civic, the poetry slam.
