Poetry. Hiphop. Dinosaur figurines. People yelling things. Come check out Melbourne's unfamous spoken word event. Budding wordsmiths compete for glory and sandwiches. You have 3 minutes to wow some random worthless judges. Then we dance. What is Slam? A poetry slam is a competition that pits poets against each other in a stand-and-deliver shoutout. It was invented because poets are boring and slam forced them to develop a personality. If you've ever wondered if your words mean anything, slam is the place to find out.
Ruckus began as an event in Brisbane in 2012 which quickly grew as an entertainment force. Producing, directing and facilitating events, Ruckus Slam has branched out to Melbourne. Ruckus continues to be a successful and influential place to get free plastic dinosaurs and have fun.
