The Floating Theatre

Winning Productions

(Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland)

The Floating Theatre is a purpose-built, fully operational theatre for an intimate audience of 30 people, floating on Whairepo Lagoon. The performers have adapted to this curiously restrictive environment with a banquet of theatre illusions that distract the audience from the one thing they seek: themselves. Meanwhile on the shore, The Floating Theatre projects a spectacle of its own to the lagoon and all those who come across it. Witness the intimate show from within, ticketed and performed by the metamorphosing troupe of two, or join the public on on the edges of Whairepo Lagoon to witness the counternarrative guided by a soundtrack and the lights of the city.


Two 45min shows each evening.
WED 22 Feb, THU 23 Feb, SUN 26 Feb - 8.00pm and 9.00pm

FRI 24 Feb, SAT 25 Feb - 9.00pm and 10.00pm



The Floating Theatre is free to attend but has limited capacity so requires booking in advance. To book your ticket, please email and include the event name, time and date of the event, and names of attendees. You will be emailed your ticket to present upon entry to the event. Places are strictly limited so if you can no longer attend the event, please contact us immediately so another willing participant can experience this unrepeatable piece of performance art.

The Floating Theatre is wheelchair accessible. If you require wheelchair seating, please let the bookings team know at least 24 hours prior to the performance time so that we can accommodate you.
