The Unit is in an empty shop space in central Exeter where we host companies to come and develop a new idea for a week. This is a R&D space only, where companies and artists can play, develop and explore an idea with out the pressure to produce something ‘finish’ by the end of their week.
The weeks run from Monday to Friday year round and the opportunity is open to everyone local and national and is a rolling application process.
Every few months, we host Scratch nights, where companies show the beginnings of ideas to an encouraging audience.
This is always an exciting evening for audience and artists a like, as the work being shown is still in development and so feedback from the audience is a crucial tool to aid the success of the show.
If you are curious about how shows get made or just want to experience something new we recommend coming to our scratch nights. There will also be nibbles laid out for you to enjoy, from our wonderful cafe.
