Call for Artists and Companies

We’re still looking for short scratch performances by young and emerging artists (age 18 to 29), to be presented at our GENERATOR  in January 2020. Find out more about Generator here.

This is a chance to show new ideas at stages of development to a public audience and to get feedback on your work.

The work to be presented on the 24th Jan doesn’t need to match our season’s theme, so any art form, subject, style is welcome as long as there is a strong vision behind it.

The work to be presented on the 25th Jan does need to match our season’s theme since that showcase will have a Cabaret focus. It will be Mc’ed and headlined by Prinx Silver (see above).

Scratch performances should be: low tech (basic lighting and PA, projection available)no longer than 15 minutes, and be new work, showing the beginnings of an idea / project
