There Will Be No Intermission
'Painfully raw, wickedly naughty, deeply moving and disconcertingly honest.'
Adored by fans of the inventive punk cabaret and darkly original song craft of her former band The Dresden Dolls, Amanda Palmer is artist that defies definition. Her unapologetic solo career has been aesthetically boundless and undeniably ambitious. Now she brings her critically acclaimed one-woman show down under.
Palmer’s ability to confront the ugly things in life and make them into beautiful and powerful music is extraordinary. Drawing on her most recent album, There Will Be No Intermission, a masterwork that touches on life, death, motherhood, abortion and miscarriage, this intimate one-woman show features a night of piano, pain and laughter.
Experience her raw emotion, intensely personal lyrics, incredible musicality and intimate interplay with the audience as Palmer performs solo on piano, sharing songs and stories in one epic concert experience.
Amanda Palmer is a singer, songwriter, playwright, pianist, author, director, blogger and ukulele enthusiast who simultaneously embraces and explodes traditional frameworks of music, theatre, and art. She first came to prominence as one half of the Boston-based punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls, earning global applause for their inventive songcraft and wide-ranging theatricality. Her solo career has proven equally brave and boundless, featuring such groundbreaking works as the fan-funded Theatre Is Evil, which made a top 10 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its release in 2012 and remains the top-funded original music project on Kickstarter. In 2013 she presented “The Art of Asking” at the annual TED conference, which has since been viewed over 20 million times worldwide. The following year saw Palmer expand her philosophy into the New York Times best-selling memoir and manual, The Art of Asking: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Let People Help. Since 2015 Palmer has used the patronage subscription crowdfunding platform Patreon to fund the creation of her artwork. This has enabled her to collaborate with artists all over the world with over 14,000 patrons supporting her creations each month. Palmer released her new solo piano album and accompanying book of photographs and essays, There Will Be No Intermission, on March 8, 2019, followed by a global tour. Recorded in late 2018 with grammy-winning Theatre Is Evil producer/engineer John Congleton at the helm, the album is a masterwork that includes life, death, abortion, and miscarriage among its tentpole themes.
