Minut Init, Uptown Damanasara
[Jacking it] is a term derived from Projek Rabak poet, Jack Malik, who embodies the character of a passionate poet who will do whatever it takes to get his work out there, whether through performance or publication. Jack Malik is known in the poetry scene as the ruthless, brave young poet who attends almost every poetry open-mic show he hears of and enquires at the door if there are any slots left to perform.
In the spirit of Jacking it, we encourage poets and perfomers alike to come for the show and do exactly what Jack Malik would – just come with your craft and be ready to perform.
No prior registrations needed, HOWEVER – do note that there will be a cap of 12 performers this time, selected on a first come first serve basis. Registration opens at 8pm, so be sure to come early! Bring your friends, loved ones or just yourself! We guarantee a chill but great evening of raw performances.
