Emmy and Peabody Award Winner Making Her DPAC Debut
Hannah Gadsby, who captured the world’s attention with her groundbreaking standup shows Nanette and Douglas, announced today that her highly anticipated new show Body Of Work will embark on a North American tour. In 2018, Hannah’s global sensation Nanette played to sold-out houses across the world before launching on Netflix, garnering Hannah an Emmy and a Peabody. After that a lot of people (heaps actually) started paying attention to what she had to say. Opportunities came a knocking, but Hannah decided to stick with what she loves and couldn’t quit: standup comedy.
So, in 2019 she wrote and toured the critically acclaimed Douglas from Helsinki to New York, including an Off-Broadway run, and everywhere in between culminating in recording the show for Netflix in Los Angeles in February 2020, just in time for well…the rest of 2020. The year that was like no other saw Hannah bunkering down in regional Australia sheltering from a global pandemic and pondering what was next.
That ponder is now a show. A brand new live show. One could say it’s a new body of work. Couldn’t one?
Hannah Gadsby’s upcoming tour will be a phone-free experience. Use of mobile phones, smart watches, smart accessories, cameras or recording devices will not be permitted in the performance space. Upon arrival at the venue, all phones and smart watches will be secured in Yondr cases that will be opened at the end of the event. Guests maintain possession of their phones at all times, and can access their phones throughout the show at designated phone use areas in the venue. All phones will be re-secured in Yondr cases before returning to the performance space. Anyone seen using a mobile phone during the performance will be escorted out of the venue. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a phone-free viewing experience.
