Trixi

is a poet and performance artist from Punakaiki, Aotearoa (NZ). She has surrendered to a tender unraveling and restless joy that just can't be held. Her art carves an awkward inquiry into the intersections of identity and the endless pursuit of place. Through words, body, and space, she shares stories of struggle and survival, resilience and resistance; stories of family, love and sexuality.

Trixi Rosa’s work is published by Hunter Writer Centre and Genre: Urban Arts. She has performed at Melbourne Writers Festival, Genre: Urban Arts at The Bowery Poetry Club (NYC), Seven Sisters Festival, and The Wheeler Centre. In 2017 she won the People’s Choice Award at the Melbourne Spoken Word Prize and in 2018 she was a Slamalamadingdong Grand Slam finalist. You can find her facilitating creative community development projects with local NGO’s and lurking around spoken word gigs in Naarm, Melbourne.
