Nocturnal: Scratch Performance Night + Social

About Nocturnal: Scratch Performance Night + Social

NOCTURNAL SCRATCH NIGHTS are monthly scratch nights for performance makers to showcase their work in freedom. Structured like an open mic, every performer/piece has a max of 10 mins to share what they want - whether that be a fully formed piece, a work in progress or an extract of a larger work etc.

We will prioritise work centred around womxn’s stories and history, smashing the patriarchy, ending misogyny and everything else you feel it’s necessary to shout about. That work might range from contemporary performance, stories, dance, poetry to abstract physical collages, comedy stand up, musical compositions, circus juggling, short films, yodelling or ensemble screaming, who knows! Nocturnal is a place for failure, putting something new in front of a supportive audience - let us help those fresh ideas become reality!

We invite performers from all backgrounds, disciplines, gender expressions, sexualities and those who identify as neurodiverse - we welcome all!
Come and show your support for some interdisciplinary delights!

Unfortunately our current venue is up three flights of stairs, so it is not fully accessible. Please get in touch with any other accessibility requests. Over 18 venue.

NOCTURNAL will also encourage fostering new networks and connections. We might play some games or just have a chat, but we'll definitely try to make networking less intimidatingly stiff!

NOCTURNAL is the perfect way to support and empower local, emerging artists.

ENTRY FEE: £4 CASH on the door (if you can't afford entry, send us a message)

IF YOU WANT TO PERFORM:
Email info@nocturnalarts.co.uk with details of what you want to perform, bring, who you are etc. Time permitting there will also be slots available on the night for any spontaneous impulses! Payment is door share.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Nocturnal: Scratch Performance Night + Social are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
