What does ‘scratch space’ mean?

  • The Moving Parts Scratch Space is a platform for puppet / visual theatre creators to try out new work to collect feedback from audiences. 

  • ‘Scratch’ means that the work showcased can be early on in its development - it doesn’t need to be a fully-realised piece. Think of it like a sketch. 

  • The Scratch Space is a platform to experiment, to play, to test ideas and a chance to include audiences in the development process. 

  • The Scratch Space is an annual opportunity which takes place either at Newcastle Puppetry Festival or Beverley Puppet Festival.
