Scratch Night in Brighton Artist Callout

Exciting news

We are launching our first Brighton scratch night at the lovely Marlborough Theatre in November and we’re so excited. The event is happening on Wednesday 16th November so be sure to save the date! It’s a supportive platform for artists to share or ‘scratch’ new work in development. A space that is open and friendly. Designed to be helpful for the artists in the continued development of their work.

We set up this scratch night as a way for artists to meet and support each other. We’re also keen to get local audiences engaged in the developmental stages of new work. We’re really looking forward to working with the Marlborough Theatre again. They supported our very first project ‘The Darkroom’ back in 2011/2012. It’ll be like returning home!

Artist Callout

We are currently looking for artists and companies to apply with pieces of no longer than 15 minutes  to be presented at this first scratch night. We’re looking for work for adult audiences, and as a company we have an interest in contemporary theatre and performance from a diverse range of practices and approaches.

If you have a new idea you’re working on and are at the stage where it needs a supportive audience and some feedback, then we’d love to hear from you.

To apply please fill in this online form (link below) by 5pm Wednesday 12th October 2016. You’ll be asked to tell us about yourself, the work you want to present and why this scratch will be useful to you.

If you experience any difficulty with the form or have any questions about the event please email us at info@witness-theatre.co.uk.

We’re looking forward to reading your applications! If you aren’t applying to take part then we’d love to have you along in the audience to support the artists. You can pay what you feel for this event but you will need a ticket. You can get yourself a ticket through the Marlborough Theatre website.
