1 - 4 May 2019
Melbourne-based poet wāni Le Frère transports audiences through the world of a third-culture generation, delivering a raw performance of vulnerability, resilience and honesty in an evening of spoken word poetry.
An ode to the flourishing of life and the telling of the untold, the show pays tribute to the incredible lineage of storytelling embedded deep within the black/African diaspora.
Through a lens both retrospective and current, Tales of an Afronaut stems from a need to reclaim self and that space in which self exists. It’s a journey of learning, sharing, vulnerability and survival, a love letter to black people. It’s an evening like nothing else.
Winner, Best Performance in Contemporary or Experimental Performance, Green Room Awards 2018
