Your Name Here: Excellent Eponyms

No longer available

Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre, Aotea Centre


Sometimes they’re an honour, sometimes they’re an insult, but they’re always a good story! Eponyms find themselves all over menus, hats, exercise manoeuvres, streets, towns, measurements, flowers, space, guns, diseases …. Following a sold-out 2019 NZ tour, award-winning entertainment podcast The Allusionist takes to the Festival stage to stick their linguistic pincers into words that come from people’s names. Join host Helen Zaltzman and musician Martin Austwick for a fun, fascinating and irreverent adventure into the chaotic world of words. 

Supported by Platinum Bold Patrons Josephine & Ross Green.
