Building on the recent scratches we've hosted, our summer of experimentation continues this August as we return to our three day scratch format. Where we'll give groups and individual artists the chance to test out even more of their work. The artists will be testing and experimenting with new ideas and they need your feedback to develop their brand new work. Come and help shape the future of these artists work and enjoy three nights of live and raw theatre in the making.

Inspired by the Dramaturgy Open Office Hour Project and as part of our own FLIGHT/RISK project we're opening up our office doors for a week every month for the next three months. Our team will be available to chat about your work and give guidance and advice were we can, on all aspects of your work. From structure to style, casting to concept; we're happy to open our doors to anyone who needs a new pair of ears or a few outside eyes. For free.

The office will be open for anyone to walk-in and chat but you can also book a specific time slot from the link below. We'll run a café service as well, so you can have a proper coffee as we talk, but the doors are open to anyone, even if you just want to come in and have a seat and a cuppa with us.

Flight/risk

JULY - OCTOBER 2016

FLIGHT/RISK is a new project from Accidental, combining ideas we've been conjuring to support theatre-makers and other artists in Belfast and Northern Ireland. For four months we've opened up our office and rehearsal spaces to artists, turning it into a hub while they develop a new piece of theatre each. Beyond the space we're offering a whole support structure and a network of fellow artists sharing workspace and ideas at the hub.

The project was developed in response to the lack of strategic investment in artists development and support in Northern Ireland. As we've been developing our own work, we know the struggle it can be to find the resources to properly test out new ideas. FLIGHT/RISK is a step towards helping fellow artists focus on themselves and they're work instead of filling in monitoring forms and bureaucratic tick boxes.

Supported by Belfast City Council.

NEW SERVICES

We're expanding the help and advice we can give fellow artists with a new Services programme. Have a look at our list of initial services, that we've aimed at a range of artists and tried to make as flexible and useful as possible. 

SCRATCH IV

Accidental are helping to set up more fantastic Scratches, for artists looking to explore work in-development. This fantastic format of performing fresh, experimental theatre in-progress has already been pioneered around the world and we want Belfast artists to have the chance to test out new ideas. Click here is you want to get involved.

PLAYGROUND

A new venture by Accidental and Down Arts Centre, giving writers space & time to explore play-making. Through alternative writing bootcamps, scratches and a playwriting programme, we’re making a place for theatrical experimentation & creative risk-taking. The project has been generously supported by Newry, Mourne & Down District Council. Click here for more.
