Come enter the Temple of Poetry. Just you, me and my typewriter for ten precious minutes.
Like nothing you’ve ever experienced before, type-a-poet is intimate, immersive and entirely dedicated to you, the audience of one. Sitting in silence with award-winning performer/writer Andi Snelling, you will be transported to another realm, where Andi will conjure an original poem for your soul on her typewriter – an inked gift for you to keep.
Part side show, part spiritual reading, type-a-poet is a magical, meditative experience that will heal the heart, bend the mind and explode time. Alongside the ongoing success of her five award-winning solo show, Happy-Go-Wrong, Andi is offering this raw, honed-in experience that is uniquely tailored to you. Set in a magical micro world hidden amongst the busy outside world, type-a-poet marries Andi’s love of word wizardry with her talent for improvisation, in her ever-continuing pursuit of shared humanity through art.
