Michelle Alina Dabrowski, also known as MC_Fembot, is a Melbourne based, Polish/Canadian artist-activist, writer, speaker, arts educator, producer and vocalist. With over ten years under her belt as an Artist working in communities, her work is a soulful blend of dance, rap, ritual, spoken word poetry and song.
As a singing, rapping, poet grounded in embodiment and dance, her work invokes the ‘re-wilded feminine’, in a continuous exploration of nature’s cycles and identity politics.
Extending beyond the stage as a feminine leader, she founded Montreal’s Throw Poetry Collective and Melbourne’s PSI-certified poetry slam, Slamalamadingdong. She is a regular host of the Australian Poetry Slam and the author of The Crescent Pathways, a social change method which grounds the teachings of her own workshops and events.
Supporting young people and intersectional communities to find their voice through writing and performance, Michelle has facilitated over 500 workshops as an arts educator. Her work has been featured on the Indiefeed performance poetry channel on SBS television and she currently works in community development, supporting young artists with a disability, as the manager of Wild at Heart’s Inkrewsive hip hop crew.
Michelle is releasing her second poetry collection, Flood Flower, in October 2017 as well as a double concept album of music and audio meditations.
