"mastering a whole new level of creative space"
I am a poet, singer and spaceholder. I hold space through my poems, songs and performances. I hold space through my work as a guide and shamanic technologist. I hold space with carefully-planned ceremonies. The work I do transcends and yet is deeply integrated into the material.
I cannot wait to share it with you.
My poems have been invited to festivals like the Barcelona International Poetry Festival and the Queensland Writers Festival and won me poetry slams in Singapore, New Zealand, Germany and Australia. In my time as an artist I've been invited as resident within spaces such as Literarisches Colloquium Berlin and The Watermill Center.
As a writer - my poetry and prose has been published by The Straits Times, Math Paper Press, Guernica Magazine and Penguin Random House and I've put 3 of my own books out - you can find a couple of them in the writing section.
I am also a founding co-organiser at Opens, a para-academic forum which seeks to catalyse open, critical conversations across local cultures and contexts. It is important to work and co-create within community. Collaboration is the future of widespread change.
In recent years, I have been most influenced by shamanic research, political and feminist discourse, and esoteric practice as the key to my personal revolution. In the world I inhabit there is no more division between the 'physical' and the 'spiritual'. This world is ours to own.
