The Puppetry Arts North East Scratch Space is a unique pop-up venue aimed at festivals and events where performance and development opportunities are offered to artists specialising in visual theatre. This year for the first time we opened applications to international artists, due to all scratch performances being online during the Covid-19 outbreak.
For five Friday evenings at 7pm in June and July, selected Scratch Space artists will perform their works-in-progress via live streaming to collect feedback from audiences. Please join the watch party on our Facebook page and give the artists your feedback! For activity videos click here.
