The Basement 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 proudly showcase the best new voices and fresh perspectives, with world premieres making up over half of our programme. So come watch sweat drip and spit fly as some of the brightest new talent earn their chops at our place. You can’t download theatre - come get something live.

Basement Lovers Club
Keen Auckland arts lover? Support The Basement!
We take the risk out of staging shows and give artists a foot in the door of the performing arts industry. From mentoring producers to writers workshops, curatorial internships, and youth empowering initiatives (like our new Schools Programme!) We’re a hub for up and coming young talent and it’s our business to safeguard a collaborative, creative culture in our city.Donate
