Chalise van Wyngaardt


Chalise van Wyngaardt is a South-African born poet, writer, editor, facilitator, theatre-maker and performer, insistent on staying a child who believes in dragons and love. Having performed around Melbourne since 2015, Chalise has featured at numerous events including Commonground Festival, Seven Sisters Festival and White Night. Chalise stretches the definition of poetry through experimentation and performance art. She believes truth is found outside the comfort zone, and the pilgrimage has scarcely begun.
