The first ever CDD Scratch Night was hosted by Northern School of Contemporary Dance on 5/6 December 2016, with students from all eight schools taking part.
Students travelled up to Leeds on Saturday and met at the school for a welcome session before an intensive day of scratch, rehearsal and performance on Sunday. Each school brought a pre-prepared piece of work, devised by students, and had time to tech and rehearse in NSCD’s beautiful Riley Theatre before a relaxed evening performance shared with each other and students from the host school. The rest of the day was devoted to creating cross-disciplinary material from scratch in small groups, the results of which were then shared informally in the studio.
