Are you a theatre maker with a (concrete plan for a) 20-minute performance that fits the DNA of Scala (formerly TapasTheater)?

for a perfomance space in AUGUST, SEPTEMBER or OCTOBER

Our pitch committee will assess your registration on: 

  • The relevance/currentity of the subject | Is your performance interesting and accessible to a larger audience than just your own environment?

  • The creativity/originality | Does your performance tell something new: in form or story?

  • Storytelling/construction | Is there a development or suspense?

  • Artistic quality 

  • Impact | Does your plan get us and therefore the audience?


- You can register for the above period until Sunday April 21st.

- The next round consists of an introductory pitch on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 May. If you are invited, you will show at least 10 minutes of the performance you registered with during your pitch. Mark these days in your diary now, because without a pitch it is unfortunately not possible to be booked.

- On Saturday May 25 and Monday May 27 (you can indicate your preference) the TheatreMakers Meetings will take place, including photo shoots for the PR material. If you are given a performance space, it is mandatory to be present on one of these dates.​

Have you ever been to Scala or previously Tapas Theater as a visitor? No worries if not, but we recommend that you do so, preferably before you register. We know from experience that a registration, and certainly the pitch, has a better chance of success if you know what you are signing up for. 


Be sure to read our Q&A for theatre makers, for all ins & outs about playing in Scala. If you have any questions and/or comments, please send us an email at  or call us on +31(0)20 779 33 06
