Big J Stylez

No longer available

Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre


Feel the vibes and aroha of Jacob Dombroski, aka Big J, as he weaves together his passions for acting, dance and music to tell the story of his life.

Big J grew up in Aotearoa as a young Samoan/Māori (Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Porou), who also happens to be born with Down syndrome.

Jacob Dombroski will NOT be labelled or defined as ‘different’!

In his award-winning and hit Fringe show Big J Stylez, Jacob lays out his life for all to see and celebrates what makes him unique.

“We cheer, and laugh and go very quiet when he describes some of the negative attitudes people have towards him” - The Wellingtonista

You will be inspired, you will laugh out loud and you will be deeply moved by this lovable underdog.

“Jacob’s energy is like no other. His charisma and voice makes him an unstoppable force on stage” Big J Stylez director, Rose Kirkup.

“It was a work that reminded me what a celebration and powerful force theatre can be” – Apirana Taylor, NZ Playwright
