GHOSTBOY Returns to Haunt Kurilpa!
David Stavanger to Feature & Judge
at Kurilpa Poetry Cup
Sunday 28th February, 2016
The Kurilpa Cup is certainly shaping up to be a fabulously entertaining event this year. Not only do we have the Cup itself and Jeff Usher as Mystery Musician, but we are also now able to confirm that Mr David “Ghostboy” Stavanger will be judging the competition and performing a special Feature Set as well.
It’s become a tradition at Kurilpa to bring outstanding members of the wider Poetic Community in to judge this annual event. Previous judges have been the highly esteemed Robin Archbold and David Hallett. And seeing we have them with us, we take the opportunity to get our judges to give a demonstration of their own poetic prowess, that we might study their technique and learn thereby.
Be that as it may, it’s also a chance to be highly entertained, and “Ghostie” is renowned not just as a talented poet and Head of the QLD Poetry Festival, but is also one of Brisbane’s outstanding Performance Poets, himself winning the 2006 Nimbin World Performance Poetry Cup.
“Always a show when Ghostboy’s on stage” as attendees of the 2014 Kurilpa Cup will vouch for, after witnessing his highly energetic and eccentric performance that year. Indeed several of them are still undergoing psychiatric counselling for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
So now we have brought him back for 2016 for more Poetic Shock-Treatment. I could fill a whole page with superlatives about this esteemed poet and performer, but I shall merely say this:
“Go to this show. Ghost boy is on.“
