Thank you for taking an interest in Stuck In The Lift! Hopefully you’re as excited as we are to get back into a rehearsal room and get those creative juices flowing! 


Elevate East and Rich Mix are looking to support 5 artists throughout June & July. To recap, we’re offering:


  • £100 fee, contributing to your creative practice 
  • 1-1 in depth conversation + consultation to gauge your needs and wants as an artist 
  • Access to a robust and ever growing east London based and focussed artist network 
  • Opportunities to test work or share ideas and feedback in the form of our ‘Basement Chatter’ sessions (one in June, one in July) 
  • Access to three days of free rehearsal space at Rich Mix (June + start of July)
  • Opportunity to perform 15 minute of your work-in-progress at the Stuck In The Lift scratch night at Rich Mix in July


We would love for you to respond creatively to our research questions, they are outlined below:


Elevate East’s Research Questions: 


  • Please briefly tell us about yourself and your creative practice 


  • What performance-based practice have you tested out/focused on during isolation over the past 12 months, what has excited you about the process(es)?


  • What elements of play do you use to insight your material?


  • What themes does your practice undertake and has this changed throughout the past 12 months?  


  • Is there anything outside of your comfort zone that you have a hunger to explore? 



  • Once you have formulated material, what practically do you need to make it happen? 


  • One of our main values at Elevate East is to ensure failure is celebrated and utilised to extend practice further. What are your thoughts on failure and how does it inform your practice? 


  • How has the industry failed you as an artist? 


We are most interested in the artists that showcase an intrigue and openness to utilising the notion of play & failure in their creative process, this is how we’ll engage the initial 5 artists for this iteration of Stuck In The Lift.
