43619493 sWelcome back!

Our first scratch night of the year has been a bit delayed, so please sign up quickly if you've got an idea you've been working on, or you've been mulling over what to do next after being in this year's Resolution! at The Place. 

Our next scratch night will be held on Friday 11 May at 8pm, and we're seeking applications from artists who'd like to be part of it. (We're also seeking future audience members as well, who'll make a note of this date so that they can join us and our artists.) 

Our deadline will be on Wednesday 18 April - the sooner you can get your application in the better, though, and if you'd like to apply but can't do it by this date, please do get in touch and we'll see what we can do.

We're seeking submissions from UK-based dance artists only to present short works in progress on this date. Pieces can be up to 10 minutes long and we prioritise new work over completed pieces. Also, as the space is rather intimate, we do prefer works using fewer dancers so that they can best make use of the space. (We really mean that, and by "fewer" we mean fewer than five). 

The space is 7.5m x 5.5m once the raised floor is taken into account, with a black rear wall and a dance floor. 

We offer artists a box office split as well as footage, photography, and a chance to receive feedback from the audience.

Please apply using our form here, and if you have any questions, please do contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We look forward to hearing from you!
