Henry Rollins is coming to GOMA! The acclaimed American musician and spoken word performer is developing a new project for the Australian Cinémathèque at GOMA, drawing upon his travel experiences and vast archive of photographs. This will be a very special and intimate evening of storytelling not to be missed.
This show is unique to his other Brisbane shows – instead of ‘An Evening With Henry Rollins’, this night will be the ‘Henry Rollins Slideshow’. There are only 200 tickets for this Australian premier.

For many years, I have documented my travels all over the world with a camera. From Baghdad to Timbuktu I have hauled camera gear around with me. Not always easy but always worth it. Many of the photos have a story, as you can imagine. Now and then, I gather several images, show them to an audience and tell those stories. It always ends up being a great evening.
Throughout his career, Henry Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as front man for both Rollins Band and Black Flag, favouring road-less-travelled locales in places such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Siberia, North Korea, South Sudan and Iran.
In an Australian first, Henry Rollins will present a special performance drawing upon these experiences and his vast archive of photographs.
