O’Leary Readings/Public Performances/Displays

Michael O’Leary conducted many poetry readings and artistic happenings throughout the 1970s, including a performance piece in Dunedin dressed as Dada artist Hugo Ball (costume by Robin Swanney-McPherson), reading at Mt Crawford Prison in Wellington with John Bailey and Paremoremo Maximum Security Prison in Auckland with Hone Tuwhare.

O’Leary performed regularly at Globe Hotel, Auckland, in the 1980s, and in many other readings throughout the 1980s around Auckland with several poets including Bob Orr, Iain Sharp, John Pule, Gregory O’Brien, Grant Duncan, Sandra Bell etc.

O’Leary has also been involved in many other readings and performances throughout the land in various bars/cafes/art galleries with a wide variety of other poets and artists up to the present day. David Eggleton and O’Leary did innovative street art, performance and theatre during the 1980s in Auckland and they also used to busk together, along with John Pule at the same period.

In 2003, O’Leary was invited to take part in the First Wellington International Poetry Festival organised by Ron Riddell and Saray Torres. That same year, an extract from O’Leary’s poem ‘It’s Not the Leaving of Wellington’ was used for a mural next to the Brooklyn Library bus shelter in Wellington. O’Leary read at the opening ceremony, with Mayor Kerry Prendergast also speaking.

O’Leary performed regularly alongside Mark Pirie at Winter Readings, Wellington, 2003-2008. Together the two poets hosted the readings and presented new and established New Zealand poets from around the country to Wellington audiences.

An O’Leary poem is also reproduced by the entrance of the Kapiti Coast Electric Tramway at MacKay’s Crossing between Paekakariki and Raumati as part of a Kapiti Coast District Council project.

In 2015, Michael O’Leary was included in the Paekakariki Arts Walk, with a public display of one of his poems.
