Welcome to Wollongong’s Home of the Performing Arts


28 - 30 Apr

By Kirby Medway & Solomon Thomas

A reluctant group of very ordinary people deal with each other at the precipice of the unknown when a spacecraft lands on a golf course. Hierarchies and arbitrary rules unfold, all the while the UFO sits silent. Until…

UFO is a new live-cinema, sci-fi theatre work performed on a 1:8 miniature golf course, using exquisitely detailed scale miniatures. Combining a mesmerising mix of video, stop-motion animation and live theatre, this work offers a contemplative alternative to narratives that deal with human-alien interaction.

Can they create order where there is none? Or will protocols break down in the face of the unknown?

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.


MERRIGONGX is our annual artists’ program. It focuses on supporting artists to take creative risks.

MERRIGONGX places artists and their practice at the centre of our community. From in-house creative developments to full-blown public presentations of new work, and everything in between, MERRIGONGX provides independent artists with financial, technical, marketing and artistic resources.
