Last year Melbourne Recital Centre launched its inaugural Writer-in-Residence program, welcoming Australian author and journalist Chloe Hooper who shared her thoughts and responses to a range of events at the Centre.
In 2018, we've partnered with the Emerging Writers Festival and over course of the year will bring you pieces from three diverse female writers on the rise who are already making their mark on Australia’s literary landscape.
In her first piece for Melbourne Recital Centre, Melbourne writer Piriye Altraide presents a video response to American musician Perfume Genius' March concert in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall. Click the PLAY VIDEO button above to watch now.
Piriye Altraide is a poet and writer of hybrid non-fiction. She is interested in translating art between forms and combining spoken word poetry with the traditional academic lecture formats.
