BURNING SEED - Creative director, producer, host and performer.
Each year, since 2017, Scratch Arts has built, managed and presented a theatre and nightly cabarets at Australia's largest regional Burning Man event.
Working with a team of 30, each year we have created unique, contemporary and risque entertainment for a festival of over 5000 people. Our nightly cabarets have included performers from across Australia and the world - with some of the standouts being; NICA graduates with elaborate aerial performances, magicians sawing audience members in half, multiple burlesque dancers performing whilst washing a firetruck, a flame-throwing trumpeter and a piano built out of volunteer audience members' bodies connected to an elaborate system of wires.
Our purpose built space has also provided many workshops, life drawing sessions, late night dance parties and a huge interactive UV reactive black-light installation called The Night Garden. This installation provides an otherworldly experience to escape to; built from 90% recycled materials it is a labyrinth among the trees where guests are invited to play or relax within the many hammocks.
