28aug7:00 pm8:30 pmMad Doggerel Cabaret @ Smash Palace

Event Details

Two poets and a musician combine to present a comic and lyric portrait of Aotearoa New Zealand and its place in the South Pacific today. Their Mad Doggerel poetry cabaret is full of cascading words, wild musicality and lightning humour.
This entertaining show will bring three nationally-eminent artists to halls and venues throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, including a National Poetry Day performance at the National Library in Wellington on Friday 26 August.
David Eggleton, the current Poet Laureate of Aotearoa 2019 – 2022, has been described by reviewers as a a jazz-bop-beatnik poet ‘whose poems never cease to amaze and astound in their creativity … in performance he is no longer just a poet but a ranter, a raver, a conjuror … his poetry spirals into today’s world from a Polynesian heritage’.
Daren Kamali was a co-founder of the South Auckland Poets’ Collective in 2008, an organisation aimed at encouraging young Pacific poets to tell their stories. An accomplished performance poet, as well as a musician, Daren Kamali has travelled the world presenting poems based on Polynesian and Pasifika legends and his own life story. 
Richard Wallis is a Dunedin-based classical guitarist. As a soundscape musician he has worked extensively with David Eggleton in producing music and video recordings.
