The 2012 Dunedin Fringe Festival is proud to present the debut performance of John Cooper Clarke’s 2012 New Zealand tour, where the iconic punk poet brings his unique style of performance to the Festival for one electrifying night. Satirical, political and piercingly funny, his work is characterised by lively, rapid-fire renditions of his poems that have become as distinctive as his visual appearance.
John Cooper Clarke will be performing as part of the Dunedin Fringe Festival on 21st March. Supporting act Martin Phillipps, from seminal Dunedin band The Chills, will be performing a short set of rare songs from the Chills back catalogue.
In the words of Festival Director, Paul Smith, “There is a huge level of interest in the work of John Cooper Clarke. In many ways, he’s the ultimate Fringe celebrity.”
