Caroline Teague: Wellington Poetry Showcase

Motif Poetry and Verb Wellington present a special evening of spoken word at the wonderful Heaven Woodfire Pizza on Cuba St (the best place to be on a cold night).

Join UK Slam Champion Sara Hirsch, for a night of warm poetry featuring brilliant local poets Lizzie Murray and Dani Yourukova followed by the fantastic British poet/musician Caroline Teague.

This is Caroline's only Wellington gig during their month long visit to New Zealand and they are not one to miss.

Caroline Teague is a London born and bred poet writing pieces on grief, identity and how they comes to terms with some harrowing realities of being human and being alive, in a style they call ‘tragic optimism’ hoping that the honesty through their writing can translate into something positive and comforting for someone else.

Creator of the musical project “Caroline Smiling” which blends music, spoken word and illustration to creatively communicate ideas around mental health and queer identity. Caroline was the international guest at the 2018 Portugal Slam in Lisbon in October 2018 and the poet in residence at the Stanza poetry festival in St. Andrews, Scotland in March 2019, continuing to perform their work regularly at poetry and literary events across the UK.
