After our first foray last November, Accidental hosted another Scratch -- 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. We want Belfast audiences to continue to have the chance to investigate and influence the brilliant theatre that is made here.
This time we had eight groups performing across three days for SCRATCH BANG WALLOP. Thanks to everyone who performed, wrote, composed, volunteered, directed, sang, played, danced, dove in, explored, investigated and just showed up to show their work.
It takes huge bravery to show your new work when its still being developed. Congratulations to you all!
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.
