MULTI-TUSK is a formidable collaboration

MULTI-TUSK is that hot stink on your collar of your ancestors breathing down your neck.
MULTI-TUSK is the taiaha in your taringas when you thought you were just listening to poetry.
MULTI-TUSK is here.
Two wHITEwARRIORwOMEN take to the stage, in various forms.
Jess Holly Bates and Rosanna Raymond collaborate to form MULTI-TUSK. She is the modern warrior – her maro is a microphone,
her coffee-cup is a taiaha, and her words breed spaces like bodies-in-being: genetic, genealogical, generative.
THIS IS performance poetry meets taiaha grading meets (HE)artbreak joins
I’m-too-busy-to-come-to-another-bloody-poetry-event meets
maidens made-in the Far North and hailing for the houses we come from.
Created and performed by Jess Holly Bates.
