An EOFY fundraising party to celebrate the launch of PACT’s new bar and foyer. Tickets $40*. 

We’re launching PACT’s new look bar and foyer with an exciting performance fundraiser featuring an amazing line up of artists, all of whom have donated their time and expertise to bring you a fantastic event.

From 3pm to 5pm on our new foyer stage, you will enjoy music from David Silver and Fox Force II; performances from Show Us Your Teeth and Emily Dash; and projections from Zender Bender.

From 5pm to 6pm in the theatre, you can sit back up and watch performances from X-pop, Cloé Fournier and Kevin Ng & Maddison Chippendale.

From 6pm to 8pm, you can get your night started with some tunes from David Silver and DJ Kingy. Plus there be performances from Show Your Teeth and Bonnie Cowan, and projections from Carla Zimbler.

You could also win the Ultimate Sydney Theatre Prize in our raffle. Raffle tickets are only $2 each or 3 for $5. You can only buy them on the day. If you buy the winning ticket, you will receive:

Our bar will be open and sausages (veg & meat) will be cooking on the BBQ all afternoon. For those with a sweet tooth, we have delicious chocolate brownies from our friends at Bakerman.

Tickets are $40 - *this includes a $15 ticket + a $25 tax deductible voluntary donation

We understand that some people are not in the position to make a donation to PACT, so there will be a limited number of $20 tickets for sale at the door. Arrive early to ensure you don't miss out. 

Every dollar raised will ensure that PACT’s vital work with early career artists can continue into 2018 and beyond.

Help us support the next generation of incredible Australian artists at Raise the Bar by joining us on Saturday 17 June from 3pm.

Can’t make Raise the Bar? You can still help by donating to PACT here or helping us spread the word.

AFTERGLOW: The internet is where innocence goes to die and you can come too

Presented by PACT
Created by zin

An existential comic happening exploring surfing the internet as a performative act.
zin are here to break the internet, and are inviting you to help.

Banal and mesmerising. Confronting and familiar. You’re the audience. You’re in control. If you don’t like it – change it.

Featuring YouTube, Wikipedia, Reddit, the memes of Meryl Streep you never knew you needed, click hole despair and click bait euphoria, in an internet spiral to hell and back.*

Is it profound or is it trash? We don’t know, but look at this panda video.

* Phones remain on. Talking encourages. People with short attention spans will get a lot out of it. Free pizza?

The internet is where innocence goes to die and you can come too was the recipient of the Best Live Art Award and New Zealand Tour Ready Award at the 2016 Melbourne Fringe.
