Poet and novelist Dominic “Tourettes” Hoey will perform at the Leigh Sawmill this month alongside Australian-based singer songwriter “Skyscraper” Stanley Woodhouse.
Dominic performs a mix of political satire and absurdist observations wrapped up in poetry. Stan croons a lyrical travelogue dripping with sarcasm, whimsy and wit.
Differing vastly in their chosen media, both artists share a love for the English language and command a room with their rapid-fire social commentary.
The Sawmill performance will be the last of a 17-date New Zealand tour that will see the pair hitting all the main centres and places as remote as Okaritio, Golden Bay and Moutere.
Dominic released his debut novel Iceland this year, which stayed on the New Zealand bestseller list for over a month.
He also performed a sold-out run of his one-man show Your Heart Looks Like A Vagina, a black comedy about his journey with autoimmune disease.
Before turning his hand to literature and theatre, Dominic was a rapper, releasing five critically-acclaimed studio albums, sharing stages with everyone from Sam Hunt to Homebrew and touring the world.
Stanley Woodhouse is returning to New Zealand for the first time in 2017 after appearing in the David Bowie tribute show, Bowie – Waiting in the Sky, and New Zealand album release last year.
Originally from Auckland, he currently resides in regional Victoria and tours Australia’s coasts year round. His debut album, Last Year’s Tune, is available through Southbound.
Dominic and Stanley perform at the Leigh Sawmill on Sunday, November 26. Tickets $10 from Under the Radar or $15 on the door.
