About Ivan Rehorek

“I am Avalanche since I am big and white and knock things over and go whoooosh a lot and cover a lot of ground with much roaring and gusto and wheeling and spinning. By definition: a mountain getting its rocks off.”
(Ivan Gabriel Rehorek)

Ivan Rehorek (aka Avalanche) is a former editor for Adelaide's famous Friendly Street Poetry collective and the first poet from there to make the transition into digital publishing. A former teacher, he was active in community theatre movements in the 1970s and is one of Adelaide's most accomplished and distinguished solo spoken word performers, his recitals often accompanied by his trustworthy saxophone. With his distinctive style, Rehorek brings to contemporary Australian poetry the distinctiveness of the "beat" generation whilst maintaining his individuality and uniqueness.

"I now live in a house with my beautiful wife and two more or less grown-up children ( aka the Leopard Lad and the Bandit Princess ) a small dog and numerous instruments, paintings, puppets, books and other presences. The moon comes to visit regularly, and towards morning, we can hear lions roaring. My saxophones seem to be breeding lately." (Ivan Gabriel Rehorek)
