Artist Callout for Second Brighton Scratch Night

Perform at our second scratch night in March

After launching our first scratch night at the lovely Marlborough Theatre in November we’re happy to announce we’ll be hosting our second Brighton scratch in March. The event is happening on Thursday 2nd March so be sure to save the date! This event will be at The Dukebox Theatre in Hove. The reason for the change in venue is we were contacted by a wheelchair user wanting to apply to the previous scratch night, and unfortunately due to the age of the building the Marlborough Theatre is not wheelchair accessible. The Dukebox has a theatre space that is wheelchair accessible.

What our scratch night is

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 had a lovely audience at the first event, and really engaging conversations and discussions after the sharing of the work.

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 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 Monday 13th February 2017. You’ll be asked to tell us about yourself, the work you want to present and why this scratch will be useful to you.

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 and more information on tickets etc will be coming soon.
