Te Ika-a-Māui North Island Tour 2023
100% Comedy. 110% ASMR!
Discover your Tingle Immunity with ASMR Artist Letitia Lickkit. This is Aotearoa’s first and only Live ASMR show!
ASMR — Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response — refers to the scientifically recognised ‘tingling’ sensation some people experience from seeing or hearing ‘triggers’. Triggers might be whispering, the tapping of wood, the crinkling of paper, or carefully executed ‘boring’ tasks such as preparing vegetables. It’s a phenomenon that has seen millions of videos created for YouTube with billions of views.
Award winning theatre-maker Amy Grace Laura has taken some of the YouTube ASMR trigger videos she adores watching and adapted them into live theatre. RAW! ASMR is a raucous celebration of the beauty, relaxing nature, and intimacy of YouTube ASMR videos.
Starring Amy’s shimmering and ‘endearing-yet-slightly-terrifying’ ASMRtistpersona Letitia Lickkit, RAW! ASMR is a fiercely fruitalicious farce about tingles and social media.
Prepare your brain for Letitia Lickkit’s live comedic anarchy and tingle-inducing spectacular organised chaos!
