Open Space – Spring 2019
Location: The Point
The Point’s Creation Space offers artists 24 hour access to a beautiful, light-filled, double-height, sprung floor rehearsal space with accommodation.
Each week we welcome some of the most exciting companies to test new ideas, take risks and break new ground in this
amazing facility. This season we’re delighted to open the doors again and invite you to join us and the artists in residency as part of our Open Space series.
Each artist or company will share something different with you; from work-in-progress to a discussion about their residency, to elements of performance, each week will be different.
We invite you to join us in our Creation Space as part of our Open Space series:
