Saturday 24th March, Jonathan Mustard + Ida Hose

This Saturday, it’s Jonathan Mustard and Ida Hose as our features for 24th March 2018 at Perth Poetry Club.

Jonathan Mustard is a freelance musician and has a reputation as one of Perth's most innovative composers writing many works for mixed media, as well as more traditional pieces for theatre, concert and stage.  A large part of his output over more than a decade has been music for dance, most notably with renowned WA choreographer, Chrissie Parrott.  He is also active in hybrid arts, performance and education and is regularly commissioned and performed in Western Australia and overseas.

A brief lull in composition activity in 2017 provided space to explore poetry again after many years’ neglect of this creative mode.  He plans to continue writing, examining in particular, the experience of people living in precarious circumstances and its effect on their emotional/mental/physical health as well as their financial situation.

Ida Hose is better known outside of poetry circles as a visual artist (painter) whose work was first professionally exhibited in 1989.  We know her at Perth Poetry Club as that quirky, at times funky, sometimes zany, spoken word performer who enlightens us on life’s fortes and foibles.  She started her PPC experience as a first-timer at the last gig of last year and we always eagerly anticipate her next instalment; this time around as a feature on Saturday.

Please join us to hear two great performers, Jonathan Mustard + Ida Hose, plus open-mike, this Saturday afternoon 2pm-4pm at the Moon Café, 323 William Street Northbridge.
