The First Ever Poetry Slam Exceeds all Expectations

25 maart 2016

We had a packed Studio Theatre for the inaugural BISS Puxi Poetry Slam on Wednesday 23 March.

Students performed poems that were funny, adorable, sweet, moving, angry, fraught, thought-provoking and polemical. A rapt audience showed their appreciation with loud applause and cries of shock and delight – exactly what poetry performance is all about. Our student judge panel were tasked with the difficult job of deciding on the winners. 

Honourable mention went to Macken and Mitchell Lee for their performance of the poem ‘Brothers’ and Kelly Kim, for her creative take on Maths and relationships in ‘The Finite Simple Group of Order 2’. Third prize went to Charlotte Dawson for her spunky rendition of ‘Phenomenal Woman’ – and she had all the moves. Second place went to an outstanding performance by Juliette Bunbury, entitled ‘Pretty’, denouncing the ravages of the beauty industry and women’s fragile hold on their body image.

Girl power was the subject of our winning performance, ably written and executed by creative duo Ruby Halls and Emily Prince. It managed to be both entertaining and strident at the same time, an insight into the teenage female mind that was both in-your-face, LOL and sympathetic. Well done, girls!

Poetry Slam is definitely an event we will stage again next year.
