School Performances

Wherever possible, we schedule these as part of our national tours, offering student tickets at a special reduced price. We also provide an education pack to ensure students have a better understanding of what they are about to see, in advance of attending a performance.

Private Performances

Looking for an utterly satisfying, uniquely personal arts experience?

We have just the ticket! A private performance of the internationally acclaimed, award-winning production Guru of Chai.

Jacob Rajan (MNZM) brings new meaning to the phrase up-close-and-personal by providing a humorous, entertaining and inspiring experience that is so delightful and unique, neither you nor your discerning guests will ever forget it.

What do I get?

We’ll bring the lighting, set, costumes and props to your selected venue (e.g. home or office) to create a truly magical occasion for your invited audience. There is no limit to the number of guests you can invite – as long as there’s enough space for them and the performers. The Artists are Arts Laureate Jacob Rajan and talented young musician Adam Ogle, supported by our stage manager who will ensure that all technical and production elements happen without a hiccup. The performance lasts 80 minutes and as an added bonus, if you wish it, Jacob is happy to chat with your guests after the show.

Indian Ink was founded on a passion for performing with mask, and that shines through in our workshops!

We deliver these all over the world, introducing people to our unique style. From acting for complete beginners, to the art of audition, to acting at the level of mask and performance technique for industry professionals.

Our workshops are led by the experienced performers who bring our shows to life each night on stage, so not only do you get to have a go yourself, you get to learn from the people who know our work best.

“I popped a mask on my face and that shy person was gone and this new being was born, and I loved it” Jacob Rajan

“The content was well planned, structured, and powerful. And the delivery of the content was done so beautifully with a lot of heart, play, humor, genuine happiness, and inspiration. One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to experience so many workshops and professional development sessions in theatre arts, and these 2 workshops by Indian Ink were truly some of my personal favorites” Amberlee Joers, Seattle Theatre Group

Love theatre or the arts? Keen for work experience?

  • love working in a fun and friendly environment …

About us:

Indian Ink is one of New Zealand’s most successful theatre companies, sharing a love of mask and storytelling with people around New Zealand, and internationally. For the past 25 years, company creators Jacob Rajan and Justin Lewis have pursued their idea of the ‘Serious Laugh’- opening mouths with laughter in order to slip something serious in. Critically acclaimed for their use of live music, heightened theatricality, humour, pathos and great storytelling, their plays blend western theatrical traditions with eastern flavours. 

To apply, please email jude@indianink.co.nz by Tuesday 1 February, including your CV and answer to the question “why would you like to be Indian Ink’s next intern?”.
