Share your work-in-progress

Shopfront Scratch Nights are a space for creative artists to come and test out their material in front of a live audience! Works-in-progress, testing grounds, the beginnings of beginnings of wild ideas, small ideas, any ideas. Something risky. And curious. A space for performers and makers to test, risk, fail, experiment, surprise and have small theatrical adventures. It really could be anything! A performance, song, a dance, a discussion – there are no rules.

If you would like to present something on this night please email our Young Leader at lily.hayman@shopfront.org.au for more info.
