“There’ll be comparisons aplenty -… Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, John Cooper Clarke – but Koyczan is staking out his own literary acreage for himself. Koyczan employs a mysterious light touch to rip open your ribcage. Allow it.” Esquire

“He makes you feel the depth of love, joy and pain in everyday life.” The Guardian

“Electrifying… this is a writer who will break your heart then heal it.” Val McDermid (The Grave Tattoo)

Accompanied by his band, The Short Story Long, Shane explores what it means to grow up – what we learn, what we forget, what we gain and what we give up. When I Was A Kid is a quest to rediscover our silliness and to embrace our wonder, to let go of our fear and spark our imaginations. Yes, he’s the the poet from the 2010 Olympic Opening Ceremonies.

Hear Shane live once and you’ll be hooked. He is humane, furious, sexy, political, tragic and so funny you’ll be laughing through your tears.

Artists – Shane Koyczan, Maiya Robbie, Jesse Lee, Olivia Mennell and Jordie Robinson

Space – Mainstage
