Getting Slammed - Raw Poetry Slam IV

Getting Slammed - Raw Poetry Slam IV

24 poets, 9 rounds, one winner!

Knockout performance poetry returns to the Fringe Bar stage with Raw Poetry Slam IV - Revenge of the Slam.

Haven’t heard of slam poetry before? Its spoken word with a difference, each performer is judged by five randomly chosen audience members and only the top performers make it through to the next round.

Some of the capital's freshest poetry talent will battle it out. With only 3 minutes per poem, 12 performers are cut down to 6, until the top three are left to hit the mic for the final round.

In a NZ Fringe Festival special, there will be two heats in the build up to the main event.
Previous participants have gone on to win and place in the NZ National Poetry Slam.
Email contact@humorous.co.nz to register, all that's required are three original poems 3min long or less. One poem performed per round.

Fast paced, fresh and fun, fringe poetry at its best.

From Raw Poetry Slam III: ‘I must admit I was extremely unsure of what I would be introduced to upon entering the Fringe Bar. I admit to not believing that poetry could pull off its own two hour show… I've been proven wrong… What we hear is entertaining, well written and (mostly) intelligent.’ – theatreview.org.nz
