 Dwayne Everettsmith  
Wednesday, 20 May 2015
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Event image
Tickets: $20-$30
Bookings: (03) 5232 2077

Dewayne Everettsmith is one of those performers with an amazing presence and a rare gift. Dewayne simply tells his story to a crowded room and everyone feels he’s singing just for them. He can’t explain it, it’s just him.
An Aboriginal man, descended from the first people of Cape Barren Island and south east Victoria’s Gunai/Kurnai people, Dewayne’s music can’t be neatly pigeonholed as Indigenous. It’s been influenced by his heritage, shaped by his tough early years, and love of many musical styles and great singers. His best known hit, It’s Like Love, was the centrepiece of the Tourism Australia global TV campaign which has received more than 20 million YouTube views.
Dewayne’s support band is Sietta. Born from a love of soul and pulsating beats Sietta are charismatic instrumentalist James Mangohig and vocalist Caiti Baker.

From one of Australia’s most innovative performing artists comes First Things First – a one-man show of technically virtuosic dance and hilarious physical theatre that explores the art of ‘getting used to it’. Do you remember your first day of school? The first time you rode a bike? Your first kiss? The first time is always memorable. But then you do it a second time, then a third. Suddenly, it’s second nature.
Join award-winning performer Joseph Simons as he explores the art of ‘getting used to it’ in this mindblowing display of physicality with his signature charm and wit. Following critically acclaimed seasons in Berlin and New York, Simons is thrilled to return home to perform First Things First for Australian audiences.
