After our first foray last November, Accidental is continuing to host more Scratches -- a platform for fellow artists to perform new pieces of theatre in development, getting them in front of an audience for feedback. The fantastic scratch format of performing fresh, experimental theatre-in-progress has already been pioneered around the world. Now we want Belfast audiences to continue to have the chance to investigate and influence the brilliant theatre that is made here.
The next scratch is:
We're hosting a special pop-up screening of a new documentary that looks at the debate on how we want to live in our cities. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic. This Northern Irish premier of Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that deep down we all know we need to talk about.
From bike activists in Sao Paulo and Los Angeles, fighting for safe bike lanes, to the City of Copenhagen, where forty percent commute by bike daily, Bikes vs Cars will look at both the struggle for bicyclists in a society dominated by cars, and the revolutionary changes that could take place if more cities moved away from car-centric models.
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.
Throughout our rehearsals for The Lost Martini we've been posting to give a glimpse behind the scenes of this new show as we make it. It's an unusual project and you can follow us as we get to grips with the trials of devising, rehearsing and immersing ourselves in the show. Check out the blogs here.
Accidental are helping to set up more fantastic Scratches, this month and beyond, 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.
