Rich Mix: The Studio

Rich Mix: The Studio Image

Rich Mix offers two performance spaces in their venue dedicated to ‘culture for a changing city’ (see also The Mix, above). Priority will be given to projects that respond to Rich Mix’s autumn season theme of well-being. 

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: Four companies will perform in The Studio, with 2 performances each during the weekend of 13 - 15 November 2020..

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 - 128 seats.

Contract & Finance: Voila will contract the companies upon acceptance to the festival. Tickets will be £10 online and £13 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 net box office 50/50. (Voila’s 50% of the box office covers the cost of hiring the venue.) Our box office income estimator (link here) is intended to give you a reasonable estimate of your show’s potential income.
