Get a dose of reality as high school students from Western Sydney perform original spoken word poetry. They’ve all been part of Real Talk, an award-winning spoken word poetry program created to help young people find their voices. In this showcase, teenagers from the program spit words from the heart and use slam poetry to tell it like it is. Sara Mansour, co-founder of Bankstown Poetry Slam, hosts this performance of fierce, funny and fresh voices of the future.

Supported by the City of Parramatta.
