How We Survive is a feminist spoken word performance featuring internationally acclaimed poets Olivia Hall and Carrie Rudzinski. This two-woman show presents a powerful and honest narrative on what is to be a woman living and surviving in 2017.

Returning to Wellington for three nights, How We Survive powerfully addresses social issues ranging from rape culture to body image to Hermione as a feminist role model. After four sold-out performances in 2016, How We Survive returns with new poems, carrying a switchblade and a hallelujah in the same breath. Hailing from New Zealand and America respectively, Hall and Rudzinski blend their voices into a powerful one and a half hour performance promising to heal, nurture, and spark discussion. Come experience just how we survive: together.

A special writing workshop will be offered on Saturday, June 24th at Fringe Bar from 3:30 pm to 5 pm. This poetry workshop will provide the tools to write honest, introspective poems and is open to beginners and advanced writers alike.
$20 waged / $10 unwaged.
Limited spaces, to reserve your spot please email

Doors will open at 7 pm. Show starts promptly at 7:30 pm.
