22 PILLARS is a spoken word performance event that takes as its theme a poetic divination of place and its possibilities. It is a site-responsive work created for an architectural, industrial space. The project engages twenty-two poets, comprising a mixed cohort of emerging and established writers. Each poet explores and reveals an archetype of Fremantle. The poets will translate this alphabet into contemporary spoken word performance pieces. They will give voice to the human and non-human world, seeking to draw the audience into a profound imagination of place and its innate possibilities.
