Big J – A New Legacy
Everybody Cool Lives Here
A solo work written and performed by Jacob Dombroski.
Big J explores Jacob’s passions – music, dance, and acting, weaving a story that allows the audience to peer in and become a part of his whānau. Highlighting struggles he has faced for being perceived to be different, Jay uses this pain to create a dialogue about acceptance and truth, inspiring others to leave their past behind and write their own destiny.
