The Free Theatre
New Zealand

Join Free Theatre's cast of The Mauricio Kagel Project for an Ubu Night which explores the countercultural world of The Beat Generation. The Free Theatre company will inhabit words, music and performances of angelheaded hipsters such as Kerouac, Ginsberg, Burroughs, Cassidy, Kyger and Vollmer.

As they weave their yarns and burn for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo, a hip concoction of Jazz and Moroccan cuisine will be on offer.

For this special Arts Festival Ubu Night, Free Theatre will be joined by collaborators from The Mauricio Kagel Project, including Gao Ping and Hamish McKeich.

Ubu Nights have become a popular feature of Free Theatre's New Works Programme at The Gym, Christchurch's exciting new contemporary performance space in The Arts Centre. Combining theatre, music, film and hospitality, these unique events provide interactive and sensory experiences. Free Theatre collaborates on these Ubu Nights with Christchurch artists from diverse disciplines.
