Gavin Rutherford

Gavin has been lucky enough to work in theatre, film and performance all over the country but is proudly based in Wellington, New Zealand.

Gavin trained at the UNITEC School of Performing and Screen Arts in Auckland. He has performed in over 50 Circa shows and is the “Dame” in the successful Circa pantomimes. He has been involved in various multidisciplinary works, which incorporated motion capture, augmented reality, and voice work. These were commercials for film and television, POW media’s animated tv series Nori – Rollercoaster Boy, work for National Radio and Learning Media, and Duncan Sarkies’ crazy podcast The Mysterious Secrets of Uncle Bertie’s Botinarium.

He has directed for Circa, KidzStuff, and produced and directed his partner Gina Vanessi’s plays, Quiver, and Minksie and Ron Explore the Gap.

In 2014, Gavin was awarded Grant Tilly Actor of the Year at the Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards (sponsored by ECaster and Proactors) for his portrayal of Eddie Carbone in Arthur Miller’s A View From The Bridge.
