FRESHLY SCRATCHED: IN COLLABORATION WITH BATTERSEA ARTS CENTRE

Battersea Arts Centre invites artists to test out new ideas for shows. Audiences like you are invited to experience these ideas and give feedback. They call this SCRATCH.

Following a successful pilot event in 2016, Battersea Arts Centre is working with The DH Ensemble to program a scratch night of exciting new work made by emerging and established D/deaf and hearing artists, which is accessible to both D/deaf and hearing audiences. 


We hope to provide a platform for a shared experience for D/deaf and hearing artists and audiences, provoking conversation, collaboration and future opportunities for development. 

Pieces presented at previous DH Ensemble scratch nights explored physical theatre, clowning, translation of established works into a visual language, integrated BSL & Spoken text, creative captioning, plays without words, burlesque, film projects and gender politics. 

Age Guidance: 16+

Scratch allows artists to test ideas and get audience feedback. The performance you will see is a work in development. Come explore and be the first to discover the future of theatre.
