The Rites of Guru Rach

Experimental Performance
Spromo-magegururachunday 19 February 11.15am

A big part of our kaupapa is supporting the arts and creativity – so we’re delighted to welcome back Rachel Baker, founding member of acclaimed Binge Culture Collective, who’s presenting her latest work The Rites of Guru Rach in the 2017 New Zealand Fringe Festival. She is collaborating with award-winning director Isobel MacKinnon to develop the show, an original work which is touring Wellington community venues this February and March.

This Sunday The Rites of Guru Rach arrives at Vogelmorn Bowling Club. A spiritual successor to 2016’s And Then She Let Herself Go, the new show approaches the same theme of worship but with entirely new forms of performance.

The Rites of Guru Rach is a playful 50-minute ceremony that celebrates the community-building power of ritual though the rousing and rampant character of Guru Rach. The makeshift mystic leads a series of interactive rituals which merge the mundane, the profane and the ridiculous. This show offers a unique performance in each venue as the work adapts with the new locations and fresh audiences.
Book at the Fringe website for this show, and to discover all all of our many tour locations.
