AN EVENING WITH AMANDA PALMER
6 November 2020 7:00pm
Caught in Aotearoa for the outbreak of Covid, and currently residing in Hastings until the smoke clears in her hometown of New York, the front-woman of the internationally acclaimed punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls comes to Dunedin for the first time to present a very special show.
Provocative, irreverent, and wildly creative, Amanda Palmer is a fearless singer, songwriter, playwright and audaciously expressive pianist who simultaneously embraces – and explodes – traditional frameworks of music, audience and art.
The show itself will feature Palmer performing with no band accompaniment, with 500% more pain, love and pathos than usual. Piano songs, ukulele songs, life stories, old favourites by The Dresden Dolls, and brand-new material written during Level 4 lockdown right here in NZ will all be on offer. Expect a night of graphic, honest, funny storytelling and very human and vulnerable songcraft.
Handkerchiefs for tears will be for sale.
