The Grass Is Dead on the Other Side
Queensland's poetry slam champion combines poetry, zombies and politics to make a statement.
Anisa Nandaula's addition to this year's Wonderland just might be the festival's most exciting event: a one-night venture into an apocalyptic world where zombies roam freely — but they're no longer munching on the contents of your head. Instead, they're trying to infect your heads, with politicians and lawmakers joining in. Doesn't sound that far removed from reality, does it?
Running across two shows at 6.30pm and 8pm on Sunday, November 25, The Grass Is Dead on the Other Side blends politics, poetry, rap, hip hop and the undead to make a biting statement. It's all written by Nandaula, who is the Queensland poetry slam champion — and the Australian poetry slam runner-up as well.
