Finding Crossroads Bio:

"Rachel Calleja and Lorin Elizabeth are two restless, award-­‐winning Australian spoken word poets, who have spent the last four years founding two successful poetry slams and performing in countless events and festivals across Australia.

This Nov/Dec, they are combining forces and heading across the USA on their Finding Crossroads tour to share words, swap rhythms, change tires and recite each other’s poems by heart.

Lorin is an imperfect rhyme from Wollongong, celebrating the release of her first EP, Poems. She has spent 2015 living in Brooklyn, NY, performing at events like WOWps in Albuquerque, NM, opening for Candy Royalle’s Butch Priestess International Tour and trying to keep her pothos plant Tiffani alive.

Rachel is a bare-­‐souled wanderer from the suburbs of Sydney, a Nimbin World Cup finalist, feature poet for the Swedish Slam Finals and a collector of foreign phrases and footprints. She spent this year living out of a suitcase, using her storytelling skills to teach young travelers about culture and history, in a series of whirlwind trips around Europe.

The Finding Crossroads tour is a celebration of spontaneity, of bare feet on rough ground, of changing direction mid-­‐sentence. Half spoken word, half adventure, Rachel and Lorin both perform with a raw vulnerability and emphasis on storytelling. They tackle topics like feminism, politics, love, travel and food. Their show will be the riveting and confronting experience of two poets giving their absolute all."
