- About Us
Q is home to a curated programme encompassing the performing arts, presented by local, national and international producers.
Our flexible spaces thrive on inventive thinking, challenging practitioners to respond with compelling live peformances that bring together artists and audiences. We want to work with the very best artists around, whist encouraging and supporting the next generation. We want to stimulate, provoke, excite and entertain by connecting the performing arts to our city. Our building fuses heritage with contemporary design- it's home to an energy and spirit that is unleashed by all who come through our doors at 305 Queen Street.
Q is conceptualised, created and championed by the very performing artists who use our facilities. Our consultation with hirers and industry professionals throughout Q’s evolution ensures that our spaces are run in ways that truly nurture, grow and enhance our industries.
Our rehearsal room, Vault, is available for hire by any company looking for a rehearsal space smack bang in the centre of Auckland's CBD.
Whilst our primary purpose is as a venue for performing arts, Q’s spaces are also available for corporate or private hire. Our venues offer fantastic function settings to host conferences, parties, launches or networking events. We do not take bookings for weddings.
Interested in hiring Q for performance?
Our Rangatira and Loft spaces are in heavy demand, and as such we cannot guarantee programming. After completing an Expression of Interest form, we consider your project at a programming meeting. Our priority is to programme professional performing arts companies.
There is very limited availability in Rangatira and Loft for 2016. Expressions of interest for events from 2017 onwards in Rangatira and Loft are welcome. To enquire about availability and Expressions of Interest email Q Theatre's Producer, firstname.lastname@example.org
