KURILPA POETS “May-niac Musings” with CAM LOGAN, May 29th



Sunday 29th May 2pm

“May-niac Musings”

With Feature Poet


and Mystery Musician


May 2016 final web handbill V2

Delve into the depths of Poetic Lunacy this May

with the Kurilpa Poets as we lift the Bell-jar and see what comes crawling out from underneath.

Yes, from the Mystical Madness of William Blake to Rimbaud’s‘ poetic derangement of the senses, and on through Artauds’ Theatre of Cruelty and Bukowski’s tales of Ordinary Madness,

the Altered Realities of Insanity have often

provided Poets with both Muse and Method.

Madcap “Bard of Ipswich”, Cam Logan

Freshly released from an un-named Ipswich Psychiatric Facility,

our Feature Poet this month will be non-other than two-time Kurilpa Poetry Cup winner and scourge of Insect-infested pianos, Cam Logan.

Sadly for us, this will be something of a Farewell Performance for Cam, as he is soon to be heading to Japan

 to bring Enlightenment to the natives, or teach English or something.

Cam dont call me piano man Logan

Who knows when the Winds of Fortune might bring the “Bard of Ipswich” back to our shores, so don’t miss this last opportunity to experience the mellifluous barbs of this celebrated Satirist.

Jem Sparkles

Jem Sparkles

Providing soothing Musical Therapy for the inmates will be our regular Mystery Musician, that lovely Loon with a tune, Ms Jem Sparkles. (Jem may or may not be playing with her imaginary support band, depending on whether the new medication is taking effect)

Skipping his medications entirely for the day to act as MC (Master of Craziness), the Reverend Hellfire will be treating us to his own auditory hallucinations, presented in the form of poems.

And of course we’ll be providing Occupational Therapy in the form of 2 Open Mic sessions so whether you’re a crazed Visionary in a garret, or the Last Sane Voice in a World gone Mad, we’d love to have you come and share your words with us.

As always the Virtual Gallery will be providing Visual stimulation with the disturbing work of Unsuspected Artists extracted from the archives by our Visual Arts Director.

And as usual there’ll be Free Food and Refreshments, Prizes, Free on-site parking and some of the friendliest Poets in Town.

All this and more for a mere $5 ($3 members)
