PULSE POINTS: Luca Rutherford – Learning How To Die

Ipswich’s Pulse Festival returns to the New Wolsey Theatre 1-10 June 2017, packed with over 50 events to thrill and entertain. To help you decide what to see, we’re running our Pulse Points Previews, asking performers to tell us about their productions.

Here, Luca Rutherford tells us about Learning How To Die which is performed at Pulse on 4 June 2017


How would you describe your show in one sentence? 
A show about death that might just change the way you live.

What appealed about appearing at Pulse? 
The bright colours of the website.

How have you been preparing for Pulse? 
Coffee and cold showers.

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings? 
It uses skipping and poo references to digest death!

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Pulse (apart from your own)? 
The Shape Of The Pain

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival? 
You can’t surprise gunge anyone in the audience.

The average human pulse rate is 70bpm, what is the pulse rate of your show and why? 
0bpm because someone in it is dead.

Learning How To Die runs at Ipswich’s Pulse Festival on June 4 2017
