From the MWF website:

In his 1954 poem ‘Meditations in an Emergency’, Frank O’Hara declared, with ambiguous irony, ‘Destroy yourself, if you don’t know!’

Join Evelyn AraluenToby FitchUrsula Robinson-Shaw and Darlene Silva Soberano for poetic performances responding to the increasingly precarious state of the world, and a tribute to the late, radical poet, Sean Bonney (1969–2019), whose final book Our Death is a work of radiant fury, lament and refusal.

In partnership with Melbourne Writers Festival (and co-presented by AP via its Cultural Fund 2020 funding)
