Women in Publishing Society Hong Kong
Invites you to
participate in an evening
of performance poetry
New Zealand performance poet
Blair will give us an insight into the whys and wherefores
of live performance poetry when he gets up to strut
his verbal stuff for our next gathering.
Blair Reeve has been reciting performance poetry for fifteen years. From his humble origins in Dunedin through the big smokes of Auckland and Tokyo, Blair ended up in Hong Kong. Blair recites monthly at the Poetry Outloud meetings in the Fringe Club in Central. He has recited his poetry in New York, London, Dublin, Tokyo, and Hong Kong, and yet despite wowing international crowds with his unique take on rhythm and meaning, Blair is a shy, humble poet, happy to share his work and inspirations with the man or woman on the street. Come to enjoy some great rhymin’ times as well as the chance to read something rhythmical yourself. If you have written any of your own poetry, please bring it along.
