Hello again! We have not one but TWO scratch nights coming up for your calendars, so we hope we'll either get to show your work in one of them and/or see you at them.

The first one will be on Tuesday 30 May, followed by our summer one on Friday 21 July. Our application deadlines will be 6 May and 26 June 30 June, however if you'd like to apply for our July date and need a decision sooner - eg due to fundraising, in-kind support or similar issues - please do let us know and we'll see if we can accommodate you.

We're seeking submissions from UK-based dance artists only to present short works in progress on this date. Pieces can be up to 15 minutes long and we prioritise new work over completed pieces.

Due to the number of applications we receive, we strongly prefer to see footage either of the proposed work or other work by the same choreographer.

Also, as the space is rather intimate, we do prefer works using fewer dancers so that they can best make use of the space. 

The stage is 7.5m x 6.5m with a black rear wall and a dance floor. 

We offer artists a box office split as well as footage, photography, and feedback via recordings of the feedback sessions and audience forms.
