Australian Poetry Slam 2011 Winner Luka “Lesson” Haralampou – Round 1 – “The New Crusades”
On Sunday, November 27th 2011, a packed Sydney Theatre chose Luka Lesson to be Australia’s Slam Champion.
Two poets from each state and territory bound onto the stage. They poured out their wit, substance and powerful emotions in a competition judged by randomly selected audience members.
A crowd of over 400 offered wild screams, applause and people leaping to their feet shouting, “yeah, that’s right!” Reminder: this is at a poetry event.
