Auckland Fringe

2012 NZ Fringe Festival winner (‘Best Newcomer’ for ‘Honey’ / ‘Outstanding Performance’ Nominee) Virginia Frankovich (‘Black Confetti’ – Auckland Theatre Company) and Phoebe Mason (‘Confessions’ – Benjamin Henson; ‘Beyond the Blue’ – Red Leap Theatre), invite you to immerse yourself in the tale of ‘Gorge’ from the 5th – 9th of March, 2013. Inspired by the obsessive nature of human consumption, Frankovich and Mason, along with director Benjamin Henson (‘Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris’; ‘Confessions’; ’Titus Andronicus’; Turn of the Screw’) have devised this twisted tale to deliver you a sensory feast.

Be led on a journey to a land of gateaux and blancmanges – when appearance was everything and substance was secondary; when morals were loose and status reigned supreme; when a dark underbelly thrummed beneath delight and wonderment. Through emotion, physicality, and personal experience, the ensemble delves into the depth of the human psyche and questions the need and nature of consumption. Rivers of cake batter, towers of marshmallow fondant, spits of roast pork, and the feeling of watching someone devour something you cannot have.

That said, the audience won’t leave the show empty-stomached.

'Gorge' will take you on a journey of excess and frivolity and leave you with a bittersweet aftertaste.
Frankovich, Mason and Henson have a record of thought-provoking devised work- not shying away from the dark and grotesque whilst never neglecting that cherry on top.

Come join the banquet.

There will be food. There will be blood.
