RISK SHARE

At the Basement we take 20%+GST of box office in place of the usual upfront venue hire fee.

Friends with benefits

An intensive, six-month development programme designed for our expansion (mid-level) artists to help launch them onto the International stage. The programme is tailored specifically for each selected participant, with access to masterclasses and industry professionals in their chosen discipline. Artists must have already had three shows programmed at Basement to qualify.
