“The wildest, most dazzling performance poet in New Zealand” — Newsroom

Whole New Woman lands you in the midst of a fractured psyche assembling itself like an army. Join the rampage, we are exiting despair.

Freya Daly Sadgrove, author of Head Girl (VUP 2020) and ringleader of poetry extravaganza Show Ponies, unleashes her hilarious, unsettling, mesmerising performance style in her first full-length show.

Following several magnetic performances together in Show Ponies, Freya will be joined again by powerhouse drummer Thomas Friggens (Sea Mouse, OdESSA) to perform poems from Head Girl along with a suite of new work in a jaw-dropping hybrid of poetry, music and theatre.

E ai ki te ‘Newsroom, koinei te whakaaturanga toikupu whakangahau rawa atu o ngā mea katoa o te taurima. Ka tika, I te mea ko te ingoa o te whakaaturanga nei, ko – He Wahine Hou.
