NIGHT LIGHT: 22 & 23 APRIL 2022

The New Zealand Dance Company's performances of Night Light have been rescheduled to June. New Auckland performance dates have been confirmed for June 3 & 4 2022 at ASB Waterfront Theatre.

At this moment, ticket holders don't need to do anything and will be contacted in the coming days with options to transfer into these new dates or request a refund.

As you can imagine, our box office at ASB Waterfront Theatre is fielding a large number of requests and we greatly appreciate your patience.

A message from The New Zealand Dance Company:

The New Zealand Dance Company (NZDC) has made the heart-wrenching decision to cancel the April/May 2022 national tour of Night Light, which was scheduled to premiere in Auckland next week in advance of performances in Whangārei and Christchurch.

The health and long-term wellbeing of our full rōpū is of paramount importance to us and a number of COVID-19 positive cases within our touring party have necessitated this cancellation of the full national tour.

We remain grateful for the vigorous support from our partners, audiences and collaborators as we continue to navigate the challenges presented by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and we look forward to sharing our mahi with audiences as soon as possible.

“He aha te mea nui o tea o?
He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.”

What is the most important thing in the world?
It is the people, it is the people, it is the people.

Red Light Update (3 Feb 2022)


Following the move to Red, we plan to go ahead with scheduled performances of Grand Horizons by reducing capacity to 100 audience members per performance, socially distanced. 

If you have purchased a ticket, we will be in touch to confirm your new seats, and advise you of your ticketing options. Our box office is fielding a large number of requests, so we greatly appreciate your patience.

We are currently reseating ticket holders to Grand Horizons to meet the capacity of 100 audience members per performance. Tickets will be on sale again once this process is complete.


We are disappointed to advise that due to the likelihood of an extended period in Red under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, Lysander’s Aunty or A Most Rageful Irreverent Comedy Concerning an Offstage Character from A Midsummer Night’s Dream is cancelled.

If you are a ticket holder, you will receive an email advising you of your ticketing options. The box office is fielding a large number of requests and we greatly appreciate your patience. 

PAKARU: 11 - 13 MAR 2022

Auckland Arts Festival (AAF) regrets to announce that due to New Zealand moving to Red under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, Pakaru has been cancelled.

Ticketholders will be refunded automatically by ASB Waterfront Theatre. If they are unable to process your refund automatically, a member of the ticketing team will call you. No further action is required on your part. The current list of show updates can be found here and Auckland Arts Festival COVID-19 Ticketing Terms & Conditions here.
