About BATS Theatre

Back

Inspired people, new ideas, innovation and exciting performance are the lifeblood of theatre practice in Aotearoa New Zealand.

BATS Theatre’s Purpose/Kaupapa is to provide a supportive, professional and accessible theatre venue that fosters the development of practitioners, audiences and New Zealand performance work.

BATS theatre is a presenter venue staging an annual programme to its audience. Our programme aims to develop live performance practitioners, audiences and new theatre works from Aotearoa New Zealand, presenting the best of cutting edge and experimental theatre from New Zealand and overseas. Many of these works go on tour and become national hits and even if the shows don’t continue on, the actors, writers, producers, designers and directors do.

As a presenting venue we are reliant on co-operatives wanting to produce works at BATS. These co-operatives are driven by artists, producers and already established theatre companies who submit scripts or proposals for us to consider in our programming.

Fundamental to BATS is the maintenance of low ticket prices and a share/risk policy between the theatre & co operatives which ensures that we remain New Zealand’s most accessible professional theatre for both audiences and practitioners – we want going to the Theatre to be as easy and accessible as going to the movies!

Ticket prices average around: $15 to $20 for waged persons, and $12 to $15 for unwaged persons.

Conversations (With My Penis)

The 2014 Comedy Festival hit Conversations (With My Penis) returns for a full season at BATS Theatre. The play explores 5 decades in the love/hate relationship between Tom (Aidan Grealish) and his penis (Carrie Green). It is an absurd buddy-comedy that tackles a lifetime of issues – from impotence to infidelity, men's health to Viagra. It has a lot of laughs and plenty of heart. “Yes, there are more jokes than you can shake a dick at but there are touching, serious issues at play too empathizing with and forcing a dialogue about modern masculinity… I cannot reiterate enough the surprising tastefulness of this piece.” – Rip It Up “Witty, adroit and very original, there is nothing unseemly or smutty about this show and it is not loaded with baseless toilet jokes but clever humour and even moments of poignant reality.” – The Dominion Post Created by Dean Hewison (director and co-writer of How to Meet Girls From a Distance, co-writer of Live at Six), Conversations (With My Penis) explores the ups and downs and ins and outs of this unique friendship. Buddies don’t come closer than this. Please note: There is no show Waitangi Day Friday 6th February. $10 Student Special Tuesday 10th February.

The Two Farting Sisters

The Two Farting Sisters is a beautifully crafted show about a girl whose flatulence causes blossoms to bloom. Using shadow puppetry, 3D puppets and live action, this delightfully cheeky piece of theatre will inspire the inner child in everyone. Petit Workshop and Renee Liang have reinvigorated this classic Chinese folk tale, throwing it bottom first into the present - from the quiet streets of Levin to the hustle and bustle of Wellington city. The Two Farting Sisters celebrates the rich multicultural landscape of New Zealand through the eyes of a feisty young heroine. It finally airs out the taboo topic of female flatulence, ultimately empowering it’s young heroine and delivering a powerful message of generosity and ingenuity in the face of adversity. Using theatrical magic to utilise the power of imagination Petit Workshop create incredible worlds out of paper, light and shadow.

What happens when that energy begins to seep into your closest relationships? A really great 68 minutes by Amelia and Saraid STOMACH. Come empty.

Mothy.

“Hello, I am the butterfly...Moth’s have it pretty simple, just head on toward the light. Your entire life is built heading toward that light until that light is not being a part of life anymore.” Mothy. directed by Ryan Knighton for Fringe Festival 2015, is a show of intimate story telling. We begin with ‘The Butterfly’ – who is a moth – building his second chrysalis in the hopes of this time, coming out as the butterfly he wants to be. As stories interweave, we meet a myriad of different characters, revealing the beauty at the heart of our tightly wound cocoons. The first show ever to be performed in the new BATS studio space, Mothy. reveals the metamorphosis taking place beneath the struggle of supermarkets, cigarettes, crowds and concerts as we all, essentially, travel towards the light. Come and cosy up while Ryan, Oli, Stevie, Amy and Lily share their stories in our collective cocoon. Part of the 2015 NZ Fringe Festival.

The Things We Do

Set in a supermarket, The Things We Do is a physical comedy devised to share the unspoken truth about those silly, quirky and outright weird things we all do when we think no one is looking. Exploring a plethora of characters during peak hour at the supermarket, it’s a spontaneous and vivacious solo show that you will spot your secret self in! Devised and performed by comic-timing virtuoso Sarah Tuck (‘dynamic physicality, good comic timing’ – Theatreview), the show exacerbates real-life situations that Sarah and some of her friends have been subjected to in supermarkets and stores. Now, Tuck brings these scenarios to life with her character-morphing, crowd-connecting charm. It’s one not to miss! Part of the 2015 NZ Fringe Festival.

Fax of Life

"But I just don't get why I'm here... like, I never even say yolo." After a rough night Hannah wakes up in Hell. There isn't any fire or brimstone; just a fax machine, Sam and the vague nostalgia for 1998. Turns out Hell is kind of boring. Luckily for Hannah there’s a catch; she can escape Hell if she decides to. Hannah thinks she’s met Sam before but she can’t place his face. Sam knows lots of facts but he doesn't really know how to help Hannah out. He reckons the only way she can get out of Hell is if she comes to terms with why she’s there. But why is she there? She never uses acronyms in day to day conversation. Hannah thinks the Devil should be able to help her, but what will she have to do for the Devil? Who is Sam and why won’t he let her touch the fax machine? And what’s with the clock on the wall and what happens when it stops ticking? Join Hannah in the non-adventure of her life as she tries to figure out how to go back and live it. It's time for Hannah to face her demons and the facts of life.

I Can't Say The F Word

Millions of words are spoken each day but for some of us there are words that, for whatever reason, cannot be said. I Can’t Say The F Word is a humorous yet deeply personal insight into how just one word can have a profound and lasting impact on an individual’s identity. Gavin Roach knocked Australia's socks off with his one-man shows Confessions of a Grindr Addict and Any Womb Will Do – two stories that hilariously tell the trials and tribulations of the love-embattled Felix.

28 Days

It is the final dress rehearsal for 28 Days, a show about menstruation that will tour around New Zealand schools. The men on the Board of the funding body have promised it will be an “honest, fun and educational exploration of every girl’s path to womanhood”. With musical numbers like “Periods Are Fun For Everyone!” and “Get Out of the Pool – Aunt Flo’s in Town!” the women performing it aren’t so sure. Delving into their own memories of periods past, they begin to devise a new show – one that speaks the truth about menstruation. There will be dancing. There will be singing. There will be fully grown women dressed as tampons. 28 Days: A Period Piece is a brand new musical comedy about, adolescence, womanhood and educational theatre from the award winning comedy collective that brought you Benedict Cumberbatch Must Die and What is this, Woman’s Hour?

Out of Order

It’s not easy being a machine. Surrounded by updates and new models, warrantees and money back guarentees, it can be tough just to stay switched on. Especially when you’re also having a midlife crisis. From depressed traffic lights to anxious vacumn cleaners, a motley crew of broken down apparatuses and appliances are assembling, and they're ready to speak out. In a series of monologues filled with interpretive dance, poems, songs and downright ridiculousness, Out of Order is the story of the voiceless hardworking bits and bobs among us. Your cell phone, your fridge, the street lamp outside, they’ve seen some things and they’ve got some stuff to say about it. A whole new level of objectification, these creatures are rebooting, compressing and reconfiguring into alarmingly human like shapes. What does it really mean to be a person, and what does it really mean to be a thing? You'll never look at your laptop quite the same again.

Confessions of a Grindr Addict

Following hit seasons in Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Perth, Adelaide, Tasmania and Brisbane, the award-winning Confessions of a Grindr Addict makes its New Zealand debut. Felix has a date. A real one! But this time it’s different. So why is he freaking out? It’s been over a year since Felix has been on a proper date and he can’t help but wonder: “What does one actually do on a date that doesn’t involve sex?” As Felix takes those first shaky steps into the scary, uncharted world of a romantic encounter where he’ll actually have to 'meet' the person, maybe deleting his trusted smartphone app wasn’t such a smart move after all! Confessions of a Grindr Addict is a comical, intimate and at times awkward journey through the gay dating world as Felix shares his secrets about sex, love and the odd fetish... or two.

Big City Hillbilly

When TM had a few drinks in her hometown of Dargaville, the last thing she expected was to wake up in New York two days later. Big City Hillbilly recounts the experience of a provincial girl from one of New Zealand’s smallest towns surviving a drunken, spontaneous move to one of the biggest cities in the world. Big City Hillbilly details the comedic juxtaposition of a naïve country bumpkin attempting to live in a strange land with bizarre customs and traditions. From kumara festivals in Northland to fighting crack whores for gypsy cabs in the Bronx, it's culture shock in the extreme as this small-town hick becomes a Big City Hillbilly. TM Bishop is one of New Zealand’s most widely-touring comedians, appearing on television and at top venues around New Zealand, Australia and the U.S. She returned home from New York in top form to win three awards in the 2013 New Zealand Comedy Guild Awards, including Gag of the Year and The President’s Medal.
