Menagerie - 8pm, Friday 27 February, Fringe Bar, 26 Allan Street, Wellington
One of the more enjoyable bio's I've written, for a cool show called 'Menagerie'. The next one of these events happens on 31 January 2015, but I'm performing in the one after that, coming up on 27 February:
"Hinemoana Baker is a poet, singer and queer raconteur who's been described as 'utterly spellbinding' and a 'major talent' on stage. These things were printed in newspapers so they must be true. She's been writing and performing as a poet and musician since the early 90s, and has shared stages with, and made a dick of herself in front of, a wide range of celebrities, including Kiri Te Kanawa, Don McGlashan and Viggo Mortensen. She will tell you these stories if you buy her a gin.
"Although she no longer looks anything like this photograph, Hinemoana chose it to represent her on this occasion because to be quite honest she is a vain person, and she likes this pic. Plus her love of top hats will never die. She enjoys fresh seafood for breakfast, long walks on the beach with her exceptionally well-behaved border collie and writing about herself in the third person."
