Discover your Tingle Immunity with ASMR artist Letitia Lickkit! This is Aotearoa’s first and only live ASMR show; a celebration of the beauty, relaxing nature, and comforting intimacy of ASMR videos. RAW! ASMR is a hugely human and fiercely fruity comedy about your cherished tingles.

Award winning theatre-maker Amy Atkins takes her most loved ASMR videos and adapts them into live theatre with the help of her ASMRtist persona Letitia Lickkit. RAW! ASMR explores the silly side of this phenomenon, too. Prepare your brain for Lickkit’s live comedic anarchy and tingle inducing spectacular organised chaos!

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response — ASMR –– refers to the scientifically recognised ‘tingling’ sensation some people experience from seeing or hearing certain visual and/or audial stimuli a.k.a ‘triggers.’ Triggers are often whispering, the tapping of wood, the crinkling of paper, or attentively executed ‘boring’ tasks such as preparing vegetables. It’s a phenomenon that has seen millions of videos created for YouTube with billions of views.

FAQs

Is there Audio Description?

There is no formal Audio Description. The show opens with an audio description of the stage performed by Letitia Lickkit but no other commentary is provided.

Is there NZSL Interpretation?

There is no NZSL Interpretation offered. The show contains a significant amount of amplified whispering and sounds. We suggest people who are Hard of Hearing sit close to the stage, or in the middle of the audience block to ensure the best audial experience possible.

Is this show tourable?
RAW! ASMR is now available for Aotearoa New Zealand and International bookings.
A tech Rider can be provided. Flick Amy an email to enquire – agl.atkins@gmail.com
