Description

We're pleased to announce Pitch Up – a welcoming gathering of artists/companies, producers and venue programmers – will be hosted by The Place in London on Thursday 17 October 2019, 1.30pm - 5.00pm. This event will have a dance theatre focus.


What is Pitch Up?

Pitch Up is a half-day event hosted by Farnham Maltings as part of the house initiative. It’s made up of 5-minute artist pitches and 2-5 minute venue pitches aimed at sharing new ideas and encouraging the connections to make them happen. Pitches come from artists/companies, producers and venues in a spirit of openness and collaboration, ensuring it’s a valuable event whether you’re pitching or not.

For this particular event, we welcoming applications from dance artists and companies. It forms part of house’s dance network pilot designed to support venues in the South East to develop audiences for dance.
