The Christchurch Arts Festival Trust does not have access to their premises. The state of their performance venues in Christchurch is unknown but their programme for August 2011 is likely to be affected.
Court Theatre do not have access to their premises so are unable to assess the impact of the earthquake. Their Midnight in Moscow season has been disrupted.
The Christchurch Symphony Orchestra’s office was damaged by the earthquake and will be closed at least until the end of next week. Their next two concerts, Lamb & Hayward Masterwork Zuccarini conducts Brahms and the Cathedral series Symphonic Sundays I have been cancelled. All of their performance venues have been damaged, in some way, so they may need to find alternatives to continue their scheduled programme.
The SCAPE Biennial on 4 March – 17 April will not go ahead.
The Physics Room’s March exhibition has been cancelled and the gallery will remain closed until further notice.
