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.
His story highlights struggles he faces for being perceived as ‘different’, and how the pain he experienced through bullying was flipped to create a dialogue about acceptance and truth. Big J Stylez is a call to action, challenging you to think about how you treat others.
Opening up his life and heart, J invites you to the party to celebrate brotherhood, family and your inner celebrity.
“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
“The dance which expresses his rage and sorrow was one of the most arresting pieces I’ve seen in a while” – Kris Wehipeihana, The Wellingtonista
