Finally a Performance Poetry production that will entice you to truly set your imagination free.
In an era not too long ago, in fact, throughout recorded human history, the purpose of poetry and the performance of poetry has primarily been to entertain the reader or the audience; until the last few decades that is.

The best and most entertaining poetry performances for many lifetimes have always been those in which the only limit to your interpretation was your imagination.
In her new production The Tales of Robyn Strangehood, in part accompanied by live musicians, Robyn Strangehood aka Robyn Radcliffe will let that which you hear shape its own unique enchanted playground in your mind to form magical spaces where your spirit can run free with wild abandon.

Bernard Fielies se gedig: Januarie-Droogte

To some degree we all know what it is to go through the dreaded long month of JanYouWorry but few, if any, have so eloquently described it with poetry before.
Though the poem featured further below has extensively been shared on social media in the past few days, many times without even acknowleging and crediting Bernard Fielies as the original author, we sought to seek his blessing and input before sharing it with our Bruinou.com readers.

Bernard Fielies is oorspronklik van Riversdal en hy is nie sommer enige Johnny-come-lately by die digkuns nie. His book of poetry called "Na die ou Riversdal" (translated: “To the old Riversdale”), was launched to much acclaim at the Ha!Qua Youth Centre Hall as far back as 12 November 2011.

Unfortunately no new copies of 'Na die Ou Riversdal' are currently available but he says he is considering printing a second edition and we have a suspicious hope that he could be working on some new material as well.
Ons hier by Bruinou.com is sommer excited om in die toekems te lees wat nog alles uit hierdie man se pen gaan vloei.

'n Gedig deur Bernard Fielies

Hier sit ek nou in Januarie, hoog en droog;
net die "memories" van die "big days" wat my soog...
Ek vroetel in my beursie om 'n noot uit te haal,
maar my "pay" is al op met die "bonus" en al...
