‘An Incompetent Life’ to Brighten Up Yours

An Incompetent Life, is a short look into a life that could've gone a bit better.

Local comedian Brian Poller looks at life just a little differently; using incompetence to gain success – or at least one version of success.

Poller will be performing his unique comedy show, that sold out at Fringe World 2017, as part of the Big Sky Festival in Geraldton on Friday 25th of May. The event will be held at the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery commencing at 8:15pm sharp (limited tickets available to the public).

Fitting in with the festival theme of “windswept words”, Poller’s intricate storytelling will have you completely absorbed in his world.

This one man show has been more than 50 years in the making... A soaring saga of disaster and comedy; inanity and depth.

In Brian’s world, competence may lead to success and money, but incompetence is a shortcut to seeing things a little differently, if only out of necessity.

“Anyone who loves tales of adventure, tragedy and raw life truths will love Brian Poller’s An Incompetent Life,” said Euphorium Creative Ringleader, Julian Canny.

“Brian’s story telling ability is incredibly engaging and will have audiences hanging on his every word. It’s also completely inspiring through his ability to tell his story and perform to a live audience, all whilst having a speech impediment.” Said Canny.

Tickets can be bought at the Geraldton Regional Library or over the phone. Please contact Tracy Smith on tracys@cgg.wa.gov.au or 9956 6659.

Find out what the Red Rubber Thing has to do with loss, how reticulation can only be managed from the inside, and a few other things that can’t be mentioned here due to....er...... incompetence!

Leeuwin Open Adventure

  • Monkey Mia to Geraldton on STS Leeuwin II (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Who: Adults (18+)
When: 3-10 June
Where: Monkey Mia to Geraldton
Cost: $2300 (includes meals, wet weather gear and safety equipment)

Adults with a sense of adventure – no sailing experience required!

Our Open Adventure voyage is for youth of all ages – for people looking for an amazing sea-going adventure. Sail on Western Australia’s own and largest tall ship – the STS Leeuwin II – sailing along some of Western Australia’s most spectacular coastline and through its pristine waters.

Your voyage starts in Monkey Mia, Shark Bay – inscribed as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1991 and included on Australia’s National Heritage List in May 2007. You will sail south along the infamous Zuytdorp Cliffs towards the equally well known Houtman Abrolhos Islands, a chain of 122 islands and associated coral reefs, to the Midwest port City of Geraldton.

Take time to visit Monkey Mia, the dolphins, Francois Peron National Park, Denham and, of course, at the end of your journey the Maritime Museum and HMAS Sydney Memorial in Geraldton.

We run a working ship, so during the voyage you will be part of hands-on activities, from:

Navigating the ship and taking the helm
Setting and furling the sails
Climbing the masts and working aloft
Standing watch while sailing through the night
Meet you Facilitators
Mark Gresser
Mark has completed a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences / Conservation and Wildlife Biology. Mark will discuss the local flora and fauna in the World Heritage Listed Area and what is being done to protect it. Mark has worked on the Faure Island Project and recently cycled over 29 600km through 28 countries between Australia and France.

“I am probably most excited about the moment I get to stand on deck and feel the wind push the ship forward as I look out to the distant horizon. I am also very excited about the prospect of teaching others how incredibly important the area is for a great variety of unique wildlife,” Mark says.

Bianca McNeair
Bianca is a Malgana woman from Gatharagudu (Shark Bay) who returns to the voyage in 2018 to discuss Malgana culture and connection to Wirriya (saltwater) and Malgana and Aboriginal history on the coast. Bianca has recently been involved in tagging endangered Loggerhead Turtles off Dirk Hartog Island. Click here for the full story.

“Giving a lecture on Malgana Culture on the deck of the Leeuwin while we sailed past Wirruwana (Dirk Hartog Island) was a huge highlight for me,” said Bianca.
