Rich Mix joins the Voila! family for the first time in 2019, offering two performance spaces (see also, The Mix). Priority will be given to projects that respond to Rich Mix’s motto 'Culture for a Changing City'.
The Studio is an ideal venue for end-on performances, shows requiring high headroom, and companies who have already toured elsewhere in Europe and want to bring their work to London. This might be physical theatre, dance-infused work, puppetry, comedy, or performance art. Please let us know why you think The Studio is the best venue for your show in your application.
The venue offers: a technician for one 3-hour tech rehearsal. You may bring your own operator for performances, or make arrangements with Rich Mix to hire an additional technician to operate your show.
Number of performances: 2
Four companies will perform in The Studio, with 2 performances each during the weekend of 8 - 10 November 2019.
Configuration Options: end-on performance space with raked bench seating. The benches provide seating for 100 audience members; it is possible to add folding chairs at the front to increase capacity.
Please bear in mind any set needs to fit in the elevator (1.1m wide x 1.4m deep x 2m high) as the theatre spaces are on the 4th floor of the venue. See specifications.
Capacity: 100 - 120 seats.
Contract & Finance: Voila will contract the companies upon acceptance to the festival. Tickets will be £10 online and £12 at the door, with booking fees of £1.50 per order paid by the ticket buyer. There is no VAT applicable on ticket sales. The festival and the performing company will split the box office 50/50. (Voila’s 50% of the box office covers the cost of hiring the venue.) Our box office income estimator (here) is intended to give you a reasonable estimate of your show’s potential income.
