Critical Mass

Critical Animals

Join Perth based performance poet Scott-Patrick Mitchell (SPM) for Critical Mass, an experimental, immersive poetry walking tour that aims to not only transform Newcastle, but you as well.

SPM will lead an audience of 12 members through the collections of Newcastle Museum and the Critical Animals exhibition at The Lock-Up. Expect a whirlwind of ecological poetry that examines our place in history and our path toward the future. All he asks for in return is an insight into that which you are most critical off in regards to being human; insight that will be weaved into a transformative experience for the audience.

That awkward first hour of the dance, where people cling to the walls and subtly check name tags. Embrace that feeling! Icky ice-breakers and gooby getting-to-know-you games.
