Ember Flame (The surprise hit at Candy Royalle's October 2011 Evening)
Skye Loneragan (award-winning international poet)
Ember Flame is a performance poet who sends up the peculiarities of modern life, as well as her own tightly-packed anxieties. She often tells her stories through different characters, from the whistle-blowing fairytale princess to the office girl who longs to give in to her jungle rhythms.
Part commentary, part confession, these urban ballads offer hope for transformation with healthy helpings of sexual innuendo. Ember usually fuses her poetry into a burlesque performance, appearing regularly at various burlesque nights around Sydney. Her words stand alone, but draw on many staples of the burlesque tradition. This is poetry designed to strip away the layers and poke fun at social conventions.
