Circus Without Circus > Interdisciplinary Residency Programme for Artists from Belgium, Croatia, Denmark and France (Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, France)

Organised by 8 partner organisations and co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, Circus Without Circus is an interdisciplinary research project for artists from the circus field and from all other artistic fields such as music, film, dance, theatre, design, architecture, visual arts, etc.

16 individual European artists, 8 from the circus field and 8 from other artistic fields, will be selected for a residency programme aimed at sparking artistic exchange between disciplines by facilitating one-on-one research residencies.

The overall aim is to facilitate cross-boundary research and to develop and explore cross-disciplinary working methods. As a participant you are invited to step out of your comfort zone, let go of habits, give up control, and open up your artistic process in the encounter with another artist.

Artists who live and/or primarily work in Belgium, Croatia, Denmark or France and who are at the beginning of their career or changing direction in their career can apply. Artists will be paired as duos – 1 artist from the circus field with 1 artist from another field. Each participant will take part in two residencies between spring 2021 and summer 2023. The residencies will be hosted by the project partners, taking place in Belgium, Croatia, Denmark and France.

The pairing of artists will be made by the project partners. As an artist you will therefore not know beforehand who you will get to work with – only that it will be an artist from a different artistic field than your own. Artists from all art forms are equally encouraged to apply.

The selected duos will benefit from a residency programme and an accompanying support programme. The project will cover travel expenses, accommodation and food (travel by train is encouraged). You will also receive a fee of €170 brutto per working day during the residencies.

Deadline: 3 December 2020
