Delaney Davidson, presents his all new show Magic Lightbox.
Remember the slide show of the returned traveller? Remember the projected image on a sheet in the living room? Remember the live orchestra providing music to the movie you went to?
See all three combined as Delaney uses an incredible blend of live music and film, paying homage to these lost ways of storytelling in his tent show carnival style revival.
Dusty highway tales, the old world of Europe, the new world of USA, a glimpse into a forgotten time. Relive the mystery of Switzerland, see New Zealand like you never saw it before, the deserts of California, fairground Brighton by the sea, the cold war Vienna, all roll into one in this irresistible work.
DELANEY DAVIDSON- Artist Laureate of New Zealand 2015, three times winner of the NZ Country Music Song of the Year Award, awarded NZ Country Music Album Of The Year, finalist for the coveted NZ Apra Silver Scroll Award, and Winner of One Man Band Competition in Zurich. His seminal influence and work with Marlon Williams on their “Sad But True” series as well as his visionary production on Tami Neilson’s acclaimed album’s “Dynamite” and “Don’t Be Afraid” have also earned him great praise from the media and huge respect amongst his peers.
A wry sense of humour, some theatre of unease, and a voice classed as “not conventionally beautiful” all combine to breathe life and space into the niche he has carved out for himself, winning him critical acclaim across the world for his original take on things.
Fresh from the success of his last European jaunt, here he comes through your town, catch him before he disappears again to distant parts unknown.
