Scott-Patrick Mitchell (@spmpoet on Instagram) is a part-time theoretical construct and a full time non-binary West Australian performance poet.
Mitchell has performed nationally at festivals like Big Sky Writers Festival, NYWF, FringeWorld, Adelaide Fringe, EWF, Crack, Critical Animals, Perth Poetry Fest, and just the other week, QPF. SPM once even performed poetry with Faker and Aussie model Jennifer Hawkins as part of an Ellery fashion show during Australian Fashion Week.
In 2015, SPM did a crazy brave thing called THE 24 HOUR PERFORMANCE POEM. It was the beginning of a three part trilogy in which SPM transmuted tragedy and grief into an ecology of performance poetry, utilising voice, improvisation, endurance and gesture to create healing poetic rituals.
