YES! After having to cancel their last St Peter's show due to illness, International spoken word poetry performer - RikTheMost - is healthy and BACK!
They're also pretty sick of having to listen to the regretful rumblings of remorse from residents who erroneously decided to skip Rik's first show in Paekakariki, many months ago and have since heard about what a great show they missed out on - so don't make that mistake again!!! ;)
So for those of you that don't know their work - Rik has been granted a Talent In The Arts Visa to stay, perform and teach spoken word in NZ for the next couple of years so they MUST be good! Government approved creativity right here! Haha.
They've also been commissioned by the BBC - ooooooh!
Have ranked second at the NZ National Slam Finals, two years in a row - aaaaaaaah!
And have represented Australia at the US World Team Slam Championship Finals! - whoop whoop!
Rik's inimitable lyrical stylings cojoin intricate word play and interesting rhythmical speech with a deep consideration for philosophy, emotion, communication and many of the other facets that make us human.
Tickets are available in advance through EventFinda for the cheap rate of:
$15 suspended ticket - Rik doesn't turn people away from their shows just because they can't afford it but this does mean that they often lose money so, if you want - you can buy a ticket that will be reserved for someone else, who cannot afford it, that can be claimed online - this means: that person doesn't have to explain themselves or their financial situation and Rik doesn't have to cover that cost. Yay!
$30 special supporter ticket - if you can afford to and want to then paying that little bit extra for your ticket will really help Rik live and eat and continue travelling with their art. They'll also MASSIVELY appreciate you for an indeterminate period of time.
On the door sales will be $20 - but if you really can't afford that then Rik's not going to turn you away - just pay what you can. x
