Up to Scratch at the Rich Mix Youth Takeover Call for Submissions (age 16-25)

The Rich Mix Youth Takeover takes place in August each year, presenting a 3-week programme of events specially dedicated to young people aged 16-25. In preparation for the Takeover this summer, the Rich Mix Young Ambassadors are looking for dynamic performers, producers and directors to come and share their devised pieces; reflecting life in the city for a young person.

Our one-off theatre/dance scratch night Up to Scratch will provide a platform for young future artists, performers, writers and directors to share and inspire others with their unique and creative pieces.

What to submit:  They are looking for submissions that can make an audience laugh or cry, that are mysterious or even moving, and that reflect the skills and creativity to be discovered by and in young Londoners.  In order for your work to be considered, you must not have been working in live performance for more than 4 years. Work must a maximum of 20 minutes and a minimum of 2 minutes and should not be a fully developed piece, but a work in development. You must be aged between 16 and 25 and London based.

What you get:  This is not a commission or a paid opportunity. Should your work be chosen, you will benefit from:

  • Inclusion in Rich Mix’s Youth Takeover programme
  • Inclusion in Rich Mix marketing materials
  • Free performance space at Rich Mix in our studio theatre, supported by a technical and front of house team
  • The opportunity for your work to be seen by a diverse audience and networking opportunities

How to apply:  To apply please complete and return the submission forms or send us a video detailing the nature of the piece, running time, information about yourself/company etc. to: rmyambassadors@gmail.com with Up to Scratch submission in the subject line.

Deadline: Monday 2 June 2014 at 10am
