dancing elephantWelcome back and Happy New Year!

Our next scratch night will be held on Friday 17 February 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 Friday 13 January; 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. Also, please do let us know if you'd like to apply but need an earlier decision, eg for funding or planning purposes. 

We're seeking submissions from UK-based dance artists 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. 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.
