Hatch: Scratch 2013
Open Call for Submissions

Sunday 9 June 2013
Embrace Arts, Leicester
6pm - late

Hatch is returning to the wonderful Embrace Arts in Leicester this Summer. We have recently joined them as associate artists’ collective for the next two years and are looking forward to delivering four live performance events in partnership with them over that period of time.

First off Hatch will be presenting a Scratch event showcasing eight new works in progress on Sunday 9 June 2013 in conjunction with circuit festival.

For this we are now inviting submissions of new live art and performance work that can travel in a suitcase.

Early outings of ideas that would benefit from exposure to a supportive audience, experimental first steps that fit into the frame of a 20 minute showing, lo-fi trials, beta tests - anything that can broadly be defined as performance or live art is welcome. The rule is: fit your stuff into a suitcase, be able to set it up and clear it away as part of your performance time and be aware that the audience is likely going to be in the space with you when you do so. Eight ideas will be selected and paired into four mini double bills.

We are interested in artists meeting and comparing notes, involving the audience in that discussion. Each double bill will be followed by a conversation between the respective artists, a guest chair and the audience. We hope to stir ideas, provide safe testing ground and encourage direct and constructive feedback. We are not looking for sleek finished or polished pieces but for strong and exciting starting points, interesting first, second and third steps and an openness to share thoughts on process and development of work.

We are offering:

- a supportive environment
- a 20 minute slot (maximum) to test run your work in progress
- a fee of 100GBP for each selected work to contribute to expenses, payable after the event on receipt of invoice
- photographic documentation
- a written response to the showcase by our writer in residence Wayne Burrows (check out his thoughts on previous events at the Hatchback blog)
- collated feedback from the audience
- the facilitation of a conversation with the audience and co-artist/s
- a lovely team there to support you

We can provide a fixed projector/fixed projection screen, a mic and stand, play a soundtrack, and can turn the lights on and off for you - unfortunately we cannot work out individual lighting states or offer other more elaborate technical set up for you due to the nature of this event.

Half an hour get in/rehearsal time in the space from 12 noon on the day can be arranged, subject to individual arrival times and prior agreement.

Deadline for submission is midday on 26 April 2013. If you are interested in applying pop us an e-mail to hatch@hatchnottingham.org.uk and we will send you an application form. We will reply to all applicants in the week following the deadline.

Looking forward to hearing from you -
