Freshly Scratched is held in the Council Chamber at Battersea Arts Centre and features artists and companies trying out new ideas in front of a supportive audience. Each piece is in an early stage of development and lasts no longer than 10 minutes.
Come along each night to see 6 artists taking risks and trying out new ideas, and help to shape the future of theatre.
Expect to see lunar missions and bread-making, blogging and bicycles; as artists working across a wide variety of disciplines share and test their ideas.
After the performances, everyone is invited to grab a bite to eat, have a drink in the Scratch Bar and discuss the evening’s events. We also encourage audience members to write feedback on each of the Scratch performances.
Scratch allows artists to test ideas and get audience feedback. Come explore and be the first to discover the future of theatre. Scratch on Twitter: #BACScratch
