7 young artists on a cobbled street




Watch a showcase of brand new work by members of DaDa’s 2020/21 Theatre Makers cohort!

DaDa Theatre Makers is an innovative artist development programme created in response to the barriers faced by disabled, Deaf and neurodivergent artists in relation to accessing training in the arts.

Over the course of 20 weeks of workshops and mentoring, the participants have expanded their practice and craft, and now they want to hear from you! Experience their work and provide feedback through this exciting evening of Scratch performances.

The DaDa Theatre Makers who will be sharing work are:
Elaine Collins: 'DDDivas'
Scott Lewis: 'Music in The Blood'
Wayne Goldstein: 'Last Stop'
Diane Richardson: A Hidden Life

Pay What You Decide

All DaDaFest Scratch 21 (DDFS21) shows are priced on a Pay What You Decide (PWYD) basis. This means that you can buy a ticket for any amount of money you like, including £0. After the show, you have the opportunity to make a donation of what you decide you want to or can afford to pay, based on your overall enjoyment of the performance.

What is DaDaFest Scratch?

Scratch is an exciting opportunity, a creative space for disabled, Deaf and neurodivergent artists to showcase the early ideas of a piece of work. It is a place for them to discover, to discuss, to develop and to explore potential next steps.

Work developed for Scratch may go on to form part of our DaDaFest International Festival next year.

Come along and try out something new! Find out more.
