Flipside‘s Scratch Night is a casual sharing platform for artists to ‘test’ brief excerpts of new material on a friendly, live audience.

Practising and aspiring artists are invited to present short performances of up to 10 minutes each, with a special focus on physical or improvisational comedy, and revues.

Participants will be allocated time to present their work, after which they will receive feedback from a panel of industry professionals or teaching artists. Audience members, via online means, will be able share their thoughts on the performances or offer encouragement to participants.

Work presented at Scratch Night should be work-in-progress, and can be work that is in the very early stages of development. For audiences, Scratch Night is a great way to see new works, contribute to the development of a piece and support the artists, all in a fun night out. Standout works may be developed and featured in the next edition of Flipside‘s Scratch Night!
