About the Festival


What is 6 Degrees Festival?

Victoria University of Wellington’s Master of Fine Art's programme in theatre is proud to celebrate the return of the Six Degrees Festival. In February 2020, 11 Masters students will present 8 shows in celebration of their achievements and a years worth of learning in the MFA programme. With shows at Studio 77 and BATS Theatre, the Festival is made up of both emerging and established artists who are excited to share their talent and work with Wellington. From a solo work about the power of women to a promenade party full of actors; a VR and dance experience to a verbatim piece about the Napier earthquakes, there is sure to be something for everyone!

Who is involved?

In 2020, we have 11 students completing their masters and presenting a work in the festival. This includes Nick Zwart, Glenn Ashworth, Julian Sewell, Hannah Clarke, Austin Harrison, Timothy Fraser, Emma Rattenbury, Carrie Thiel, Claire Waldron, Jacob Cleghorn and Max Nunes-Cesar. The festival is also produced by Beth Taylor with internship from Tyler Clarke and Zoe Christall.

How can I get my tickets?

After a successful inaugural festival in 2019, we are back with a bang and better than ever. Aside from our first show presented in Studio 77, we are really excited to be presenting 7 of our 8 works at BATS Theatre this year over three weeks of their programme.
