Home to Auckland's most adventurous performing artists and audiences, this is the place to be discovered, entertained and inspired
The Basement Theatre is Auckland’s culture-defining powerhouse - home to an artistic mixtape of theatre makers, dancers, visual artists, poets, musicians, comedians and everyone in between. We are chocka-block full of original local content - world premieres make up over half of our programme- and we proudly showcase the best new voices and fresh perspectives.
We have been described by Metro Magazine as "the beating heart of Auckland theatre" and by the New Zealand Herald as "the most exciting live theatre in the country".
We are a also a lean organisation that pours all of our revenue back into our development programmes, helping to foster emerging artists and inspire their audiences.
