Get Physical And Wrestle With Poetry At The Sing Lit Body Slam This 6 & 7 October 2017

As outlandish as it sounds, literary non-profit Sing Lit Station and Grapple MAX Dojo have teamed up for Singapore’s first-ever poetic wrestling showcase — Sing Lit Body Slam.

Head on down to Aliwal Arts Centre on the evenings of 6 & 7 October 2017 and witness poets and pro-wrestlers duke it out both verbally and physically.

It will be a night filled with blood-thumping exhilaration as poets, such as Stephanie Dogfoot, Joses Ho, Joshua Ip, Rajita Jay and David Wong, wage a war of words while elite wrestlers from Grapple MAX Dojo, including some of Southeast Asia’s renowned Greg Glorious, Dennis “The Ladykiller” H and Nyc “The Aerial Sniper”, move synchronously to the verses, exchanging throws and takedowns.

The topics covered range from a crash course for the uninitiated on pro-wrestling, to a debate over Shakespearean and contemporary love poetry, and eventually culminate in a language showdown between Singlish and the Queen’s English.

You can also expect original poetry written by some of the poets as well.
