I've become a Metaphor Wrestler!

It's not the muscles that count in this new art form and sport ... Metaphor wrestlers battle with words.

This weekend I took part in an exclusive workshop in Gothenburg that resulted in a show where eight wrestlers improvised metaphors on stage to the beat of a live band in a dark room.

More scary than taking part in a Poetry Slam, that's for sure. But what helps is that you create a wrestling character and I am Backpackia! And Backpackia is the thumb that was on its way to Thailand but ended up at the local supermarket ...

However Metaphor Wrestling itself is going to take over the world, you can look at some cool pictures of the wrestlers on the Metaphor Wrestling website.
