One on One at Basement Theatre
This Fringe Festival at Basement we are taking the intimacy of live performance to the next level as we host a series of artistic encounters all designed to be performed to just one audience member. You might hear confessions, return to the womb or have a night out, but as different as these unforgettable experiences are each one is safe, guided, and created on the spot, just for you.
Our one on one shows will be working like clockwork so please arrive 10 minutes before and check in with the box office so you don't miss out on your experience.
As part of Auckland Fringe Festival running 20 February - 4 March 2018
For Your Eyes Only 20 - 24 Feb. 6 - 8pm.

Women and Water 20 - 24 Feb, 6pm on.
Women and Water is a merging of theatre, music and ritual to create a regenerative experience just for you.
