Augusta, 20 August 2024

Augusta Centennial Hall, WA, Wardandi Country 

 Beautiful Augusta, where two oceans meet, is as far south-west as one can go in Australia. The Centennial Hall is an integral part of Augusta citizens’ celebratory life events, a place for creative pursuits of music, dance, art and craft, or on the more physical side, a location for exercise and gardening.

Augusta is a small town on the banks of the Blackwood River, a short drive from Australia’s tallest light house at Cape Leeuwin. It is a popular holiday destination in summer, focusing on camping and water based activities. However, in winter it is a perfect location to see whales in Flinders Bay and spectacular wildflowers in adjacent Karri Marri Forests. Coffee shops abound in town, at the river mouth where the Colour Patch Cafe is recognised as “the last eating house before Antarctica”, and also at the Leeuwin Lighthouse.

Festival of Small Halls rolls into Augusta on Tuesday, 20 August 2024 with Jed Parsons (NZ) and Alana Wilkinson (AUS).

Opening the show will be local act Sari Bennett!

Sari Ellen Bennett is a WA based writer and performance poet who lives on Molloy Island. She is a collector of moments and a seeker of the sacred hidden within in the mundane. Her writing style is unique in the way it weaves whimsical imagery with hard hitting concepts, challenging the status quo and questioning human behaviours.

With a background in dance, martial arts, acrobatics and physical theatre, Sari’s embodied spoken word performances breathe life into her heartfelt poetry. Sari has performed at many festivals and events including the Nannup Music Festival, The Denmark Festival of Voice, The Nanga Music Festival, The Wild Village Womens Festival and More.

In 2021 Sari wrote, directed and produced her highly successful one woman show called Finding Voice which she went on to perform around WA and most recently in Sydney.
