Tales of an Afronaut


Melbourne-based poet wāni Le Frère transports audiences through the world of a third-culture generation, delivering a raw performance of vulnerability, resilience and honesty in an evening of spokenword poetry.

An ode to the flourishing of life and the telling of the untold, Tales of an Afronaut pays tribute to the incredible lineage of storytelling embedded deep within the black/African diaspora. Through a lens both retrospective and current, Tales of an Afronaut is an evening like nothing else.
