Binge Culture presents
By Joel Baxendale, Freya Daly Sadgrove, Karin
McCracken, Oliver Devlin, & Ralph Upton

Theatre has never been this thrilling… Wellington’s iconic theatre collective Binge Culture have re imagined the classic game of deception Werewolf into a smash hit horror-theater experience.

Watch out – it is coming to you! in the Fairfield Ballroom, the first stop on their nine locations Tour across Aotearoa this May.

….Anything can happen in the dark if you’re not paying attention.

A thrilling new live experience from Binge Culture, Werewolf feels almost like a game by daylight – but takes on a whole new life when plunged into the night.

Are you paying attention?

Werewolf features a unique immersive performance format – audience members can be a fly on the wall or take charge of the situation. However you decide to play it, the whole room is part of a makeshift community coming together to make it through the night. But what is hiding in the darkness that is making everyone so nervous?

Binge Culture are responsible for boundary pushing productions such as app-driven adventure Big Data, and Edinburgh Fringe successes Whales and Break Up [we need to talk]. Playing on the wild swings between solidarity and divisiveness of recent shared experiences, Binge Culture’s newest venture recontextualises a popular party game into a live experience that interrogates our fear of the unknown.

Binge Culture invites audiences to come together for a communal experience, a deliciously tense thrill and something completely different for an evening out with friends. Intuitive, chilling, and somehow also quite funny – Werewolf is a celebration of exquisitely communal, live theatre.

Werewolf features a chilling sound design by Oliver Devlin (Hans Pucket) and gripping performances from Karin McCracken (Yes! Yes! Yes!, Aliens & Anorexia), Arlo Gibson (Owls Do Cry, Destination Mars), and Joel Baxendale (All Your Wants and Needs, Destination Mars).
