Made From Scratch – June

Wed 15 Jun

Made From Scratch is a multi-artform performance night offering artists space and support to test new ideas in front of a live audience.

Here, experimentation is key.

The beauty is you get to experience a little bit of everything. These events will showcase new works from local artists across performance, film, stand-up comedy, poetry, music, cabaret, circus and anything in between.


Old school RnB, soul, funk and all-around good vibes from South Coast based singer, Blessie Pica. 

The Strangeways Ensemble’s Ethan Arnold will perform his monologue “Spider in My Room” with support from fellow ensemble members Jordan Bowater and Ethan Green.

Rad, rhythmic and percussive original music from Shellharbour duo, JOCEAN 

Nat Cunzolo presents excerpts from three premiere pieces curated for the upcoming For Now by AUSTI Dance and Physical Theatre. 

Gregory Paul Mineef, South Coast composer & multi-instrumentalist will perform solo piano works and tracks from his new album Incidental, along with video projection.   

Indie/folk vibes and original songs from local musician, Nicci Ru.  

Comedian Julian Frazer brings plenty of laughs while living by the motto “if you can’t find your own tragedy funny then it’s just tragic”.  

Illawarra based theatre practitioner Leah Herbert previews a scene from her body-positive work, Fat Girl 

The night will be hosted by comedian and writer, Jacinta Gregory

Pay What You Feel

We want to make it easier to experience new works. So for this event there is no set ticket price. Instead, you simply reserve a spot, show up, then pay what you feel the performance is worth afterwards.

1. Reserve your spot for free.

Register and reserve your spot online.

If this is your first time, you will need to sign up. All you need is an email address and a credit or debit card (note – no money is charged to your card.)

2. See the show. 

You know this bit…

3. Pay what you feel. 

After the show, we’ll send you an email asking how much you want to contribute. You choose the amount based on your experience and your circumstances. There is no minimum or maximum amount.

Important: If you reserve a seat and don’t show up on the night, you will be charged a $20 no-show fee per seat. This ensures that the artists don’t miss out for their work.
