A solo performance of songs, stories and homemade opera from “maverick composer” (The Wire) Dominic Robertson.
Over a twenty year career, often under the pseudonym Ergo Phizmiz, Dominic created internationally touring work in songwriting, theatre, radio, opera, installations, and performance, to widespread acclaim.
This evening at Quay Arts is his first live show following a three year hiatus from performance, and his first show on the Isle of Wight – where he lived for some time – for almost ten years.
Expect everything from yodelling to Brexit Opera, songwriting to shadow-puppetry, as Dominic takes you on a whistle-stop tour of his immense back-catalogue (which totals over 300 hours of released music), and showcases new ideas and material for future projects.
What the papers say
“A truly English original who we should cherish deeply”
“Eccentric, boundary testing, ridiculously different…In some ways you could say he is the complete artist…”
“A burst of colour, noise and imagination…I would be slightly disappointed if you had witnessed anything like it before”
