Rapper, songwriter and raconteur Dizraeli brings his new book Animal Noises to the Push the Boat Out stage. Drawing together a collection of lyrics, diary entries, experimental writings and surreal illustrations from the margins of his notebooks, he takes a searingly honest look at the mess of human creation, and it bursts with life.
In this not-to-be-missed performance, Dizraeli strips his craft to the bones, sharing writings on fatherhood, sex and the end of the world. Expect ferociously sharp lyricism and a sense of the absurd. Think Dylan Thomas meeting Black Thought at a John Cage concert, and you?re halfway there.
