The Creator Lab

Posted by Meat Market



Meat Market: The Stables

The Creator Lab brings diverse artists, creators, and thinkers together over 8 weeks to create a new body of work that is personal, important, and pushes our boundaries. 

We're finally showcasing these works including live theatre performances, short films, visual art, live food tasting, meeting lots of other creatives, sharing a drink with us, and having a blast, all in support of a great cause.

This evening is a Laboratory environment in that we are testing new ideas and some wacky ideas on you! We are taking short feedback from the audience after each performance in the form of feedback cards, so these works can improve and you have a creative input into the new versions of the work. These are in-development works but we've made sure they are of a certain quality, so this will be a very entertaining showcase.

Tickets are $20 which includes 1 free alcoholic drink: including red or white wine, beer or cider and light snacks, and other non-alcohol options available.

Profit from your ticket sale will raise money for the Save The Children East Africa Appeal. All proceeds from ticket and drink sales will be donated to help these communities via Save The Children's great programs in the region.

Children and families in Ethiopia, Somalia and Somaliland are struggling through the region's worst drought in half a century. It has ruined harvests and devastated livestock - leaving 10.2 million people in urgent need of food aid and 5.7 million children at risk of hunger in Ethiopia alone.

This will be a joyous celebration of many art forms, with some of the work on display:


Polly Hern'andez is a South American illustrator and artist showcasing delicate and sophisticated watercolour drawings.


* A story of a teenage girl obsessed with dating shows. A short play adaption of a feature film script that combines 80's teen flick with surreal sci-fi aspects when the teen discovers a dating show robot is not all he seems. By Sean Whelan

* A scene from a feature film about a fantastical hotel in the alps where the holiday goers find themselves in a precarious situation. By Nate Bockely.


1. Here's one I prepared earlier - Jamie Unicomb. A Pilot episode of an R rated comedy cooking show, merging green curry and supernatural forces.

2. A romantic comedy involving a florist and a thief - Valerie Duthil and Lionel Jackman. The characters both get more than they bargained for in this fun, and sensual short film.

3, Masters of Prophecy - Lionel Jackman. Deep in the bush in the Mornington Peninsula, a Jihadist training camp is desperate for recruits and decides to stage their own reality TV show to attract attention. The contestants may find out too late what's really in store for them.
