CASA Latin American Theatre Festival 2011 is proud to announce the return of the Nuestra CASA Scratch Festival.
There are very few other scratch nights like it: we bring together the most promising Latin American theatre-makers who are resident in the UK, give them £250, two days rehearsal space and their own mentor. Their task? To come up with ten to fifteen minutes of new material that makes you wonder why they were not included in the main programme from the outset.
Our aim is to encourage Latin Americans in the UK to turn the theatre they have been imagining into something they can present before a receptive public. The pieces will be discussed by the panel and spectators, then those that excite us may be chosen for further development – hopefully to appear in CASA 2012 as a fully funded production.
