The City of Berlin had two periods in its history when it inspired and gave shelter to innovative and international artists – both after the two world wars that Germany caused and lost. Ubu and his friends pay homage to these times, playing music, from the cabarets where Marlene Dietrich performed and the Broadway musical based on them to the edgy, jazzy New Wave of David Bowie and Lou Reed, Nick Cave and U2.

Ubu Nights are a series of entertainments (combining theatre, music, film and hospitality) that engage diverse communities in interactive and sensory experiences. Proudly supported by the Christchurch City Council, the Arts Centre of Christchurch and RDU, Free Theatre is collaborating on these Ubu Nights with Christchurch artists from different disciplines. The unique experience of contemporary performance is quite unlike anything on offer in Christchurch and is proving very popular with Neat Places describing Ubu Nights as “our new favourite thing to do on Friday nights”.
