95 Empire Street
FROM SCRATCH is a series of work in progress sharings at AS220’s Ninety-five Empire Black Box Space.
Theatre and performance makers from the local community will ‘scratch’ their work and audiences are invited to be a part of its development.
Tickets $7. 100% of the proceeds go to the artists and producers to support the making of new work and the continued promotion of the FROM SCRATCH series at AS220.
The evening will feature new and innovative artists making performance-based work in Providence, Rhode Island, and beyond and encourage feedback direct from audiences to shape new work.
SO FAR WE’VE GOT
A devised piece of a dreamscape that may be used as part of “Confessions of a Recovering Catholic,” work that was previously scratched on July 6th.
Back o’ Hartland
The first draft of a play about a woman with special needs and her estranged and troubled brother who comes back to town after the death of their parents. It’s not as sad as all that.
What is Scratch?
Scratches are very new, very experimental iterations of work – nothing polished, nothing held back. Each night will be an opportunity to see how new performance and theatre work is made in a variety of disciplines including devised theatre, spoken word/comedy, new writing, and dance. Just being in the room helps artists develop their work further. Feedback will also be highly encouraged, an exciting opportunity for audiences to directly influence the development of new work.
