Poet Laureate Telia Nevile - While I'm Away
2010 Golden Gibbo Nominee
You're invited to take part in a mighty expedition led by one endearingly awkward poet for the people.
Set against a retro slideshow of the world's greatest sites, join Poet Laureate Telia Nevile's grand tour of love and life as she surveys the ruins of her own self-worth in "This Temple of Love is a Renovator's Dream", experiences the high-speed emotional danger of the Alps in "I Broke My Heart on the Black Run of Your Emotions", and gets primal on the prowl with "Safari".
"Four stars. If the thought of a poetry reading terrifies you more than turbulence, relax: this flight soars." The Age
""Four stars" - The Age"
""Emotional, intelligent, intimate and fashionably original" - Buzzcuts"
""On the night I attended every poem drew spontaneous applause from people who probably hadnt expected to find their mitts banging together" - Capital Idea"
""There's a bittersweet tenderness to this production that I found utterly disarming, as well as a sharp, dry wit and subtle, goofy, fragile charm" - Man About Town"
""Unusual, intimate and unexpectedly delightful " - Aussie Theatre"
