WORD BENDER, a weekend of spoken word, poetry, language and creative collaboration.
6PM SATURDAY 23 SEPTEMBER & 2PM SUNDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2017
WORD BENDER will be hitting The Lock-Up with a focus on spoken word, poetry, unexpected encounters, music and text-based creative practice. This weekend-only event will transform the city’s old police station and lock-up into a dynamic and festival-like space exploding with performance, celebration and discovery.
A weekend only art happening, ‘The Bender’ has become an annual feature of The Lock-Up’s program. An immersive experience, this two-day interdisciplinary feast will feature invited headline acts and local artists. A celebration of collaboration, the BENDER is a time for experimentation, exploration & getting twisted.
