Auckland Fringe at Q Theatre

Submissions are now open for Q's hand-picked Auckland Fringe Festival 2018 programme.

Auckland Fringe at Q is an accessible, supportive and professional experience. A place to bring your big Fringe dreams to life.

We are putting out the call for submission for:

  • Ticketed Seasons 
    Loft and Vault performance spaces are ideal for a 4 or 5 night season. Seasons will be double or triple billed
  • Free Non-Ticketed Events & Performances 
    Lounge is an ideal exhibition area. It’s a visual/installation art space right on Queen Street - an open inviting area just waiting for Fringey ideas. 

Our Auckland Fringe dream for Q:

“Our ever-expanding vision for Auckland Fringe at Q is to present a platter of local, national and international artists to Auckland audiences. We aim to design a programme that includes a spectrum of emerging, mid-career and established practitioners presenting work alongside each other; projects at their leading edge that challenge artists and audiences alike and are wide open to possibility. We want the very best of the Fringe to feel at home at Q.”

Sarah Graham, Programme Director, Q Theatre
