The unapologetic front-woman of The Dresden Dolls brings her critically-acclaimed one-woman show to Christchurch – a night of piano, pain and laughter you must experience live.
Emphatic artist, feminist and singer-songwriter Amanda Palmer, a cult hero to her adoring fans, has conjured a searing and infectious punk-piano masterpiece in There Will Be No Intermission. A response to global anxieties and the #MeToo movement, as well as personal grief and motherhood, this wise and witty new album is resonating with audiences around the world, and has furthered Palmer’s passionate following wherever she tours it.
Commanding the stage alone and performing simply with a grand piano and ukelele, Palmer’s intensely intimate show offers an unforgettable synergy of triumphant anthems including ‘Drowning in the Sound’ and ‘Voicemail for Jill’, and emotionally raw monologues, at once brave, inspiring and relatable in their honesty. Heart-rending and unflinching, don’t miss the naked truth of Palmer’s songs and stories as they were meant to be heard and felt – live and in the flesh.
