From Scratch guide their audience through a magical journey, part sculpture, part music, part ritual. Rhythmic and instrument invention lie at the heart of From Scratch and have earned the group an international reputation for visually captivating and sonically mesmerizing performances.

Their most memorable performances have been described as “… among the greatest in any art form to come out of this country”.

With a forty year-plus history, recently celebrated with an expansive art gallery survey exhibition, this NZ group is not to be missed!

Appeal: Contemporary, alternative, and appeals across the generations, young to old.
