Do you want to create new performing arts in an international environment? Apply for Theatre in Palm’s 2024 performing arts residency!

About the project and the residencies:
The Theatre in Palm partner countries will organize 12 local residencies for emerging artists in 2024! Each of the 12 partner countries will host five emerging artists for two weeks in their local venues.

Theatre in Palm’s residencies give the artists an opportunity for professional development and to build their networks in Europe. The main goal of the residencies is to foster collaboration, inspire and share insights and experiences while creating new relationships.

Each residency will work on a co-production that can take many different forms. It can be artworks, plays, scripts, performance works, recorded performances, videos, text, paintings and more. The only requirement is that it must be able to be displayed digitally in the project’s digital library – Theatre Repository.

The residencies will take place in 12 different countries at different times in 2024. You can apply to all open calls. Please note that different dates and conditions apply to each country. Read more and apply here.
