Poetry as a Passageway

La Mama Poetica July welcomes you into the somatic, unifying poetry of multidisciplinary artist Tariro Mavondo. Rose Lucas reads from her new book ‘Remarkable as Breathing’ (Liquid Amber Press, 2024), inspired by reflective and contemplative practice. Brendan Ryan, author of ‘Feldspar’ (Recent Work Press, 2023), unflinchingly explores rural landscapes and the people and animals that inhabit them. And we invite you into the alert, sharply observant poetry of genderqueer transfemme poet Josie/Jocelyn Suzanne.

Featuring Tariro Mavondo, Rose Lucas, Brendan Ryan & Josie/Jocelyn Suzanne

Hosted by Amanda Anastasi

Poetica July 2024 will also be livestreamed. Livestream playback will be available for 72 hours after the show.
