Show Ponies makes its long-awaited debut in Tāmaki Makaurau! After smash-hit shows for Verb, Featherston Booktown, NZ Young Writers Festival, and Brisbane Writers Festival, the show finally arrives – in an exciting Pride Edition – with a lineup of eight poetry icons. Keep an eye out as we will be announcing them soon!

If you haven’t heard of Show Ponies, the concept is simple: poets are pop stars now. It’s poetry with the volume right up, more gig than reading. Aotearoa’s most engaging live poets perform their work in outrageous costumes, amongst bright lights, beats and backup dancers. MC’d by Show Ponies ringleader Freya Daly Sadgrove, this is an electrifying poetic extravaganza that you won’t want to miss.

Tickets to be released at later date.

Reviews

  • Hannah Newport-Watson, Pantograph Punch

    Freya Daly Sadgrove had a vision, and she brought it to reality in more luxury, glitter and glory than anyone could ever have hoped.
  • Anna Jackson, Poetry Shelf

    From now on reading poetry without back-up dancers is going to seem very diminished.
