We are a national hot-house for emerging and established talent. We create opportunities for collaboration, influence, experience and ingenuity, presenting world premieres from local artists alongside international hits.



We connect New Zealand improvisors with the world, Wellington audiences with new & diverse works, and emerging practitioners with experienced artists. We aim to foster an environment that is inclusive, diverse, professional, and a pleasure and a privilege to be a part of.




We stand by our work as performers, teachers, artists, and producers. We support and empower our participants and audience to have positive and constructive experiences.



We strive to ensure the work we present, both onstage and off, is among the best in the industry, worldwide. We provide a high quality experience for festival participants, team members, stakeholders, and audience.
