PimOff Theatre > Citofonare PimOff Residency Programme for Contemporary Dance and Performance (Italy)


Pim Spazio Scenico cultural association, based at PimOff Theatre in Milan, has launched the 6th edition of the open call Citofonare PimOff, its residency programme in support of national and international choreographic and performative research.

Initially designed as an open call addressed to every sector of the performing arts, during its six editions Citofonare PimOff has defined its focus on dance and performance, sectors that in the Italian context are more sacrificed than others. However, traces of its original form remain, as well as those of the diversified activity of Pim Spazio Scenico association; these traces are reflected in a broad conception of dance and performance, a perspective that considers hybridisation between knowledges and arts as an indispensable resource for reporting the complexity of our time.

Citofonare PimOff supports dance and performance projects at their creation phase, which have never been presented in front of a public in their final form. PimOff will provide to all selected artists a residency, lasting a maximum of two weeks, from February to June 2022.

Whatever the stage of development of the project is, at the end of the residency, all companies/artists are asked to present to the public, a preview, an extract or a study.

PimOff will provide:

  • Rehearsal studio (schedule to be agreed).

  • Accommodation for maximum 4 people and use of the kitchen (board excluded).

  • Financial support of 1000 €.

  • A pocket budget of 500 € to be invested in professional counselling and tutoring, in

  • support of the development of the project or the professional growth of the

  • company/artist.

  • Technical counselling.

  • Organisation, promotion and communication support.

  • Production of video and photographic material, in collaboration with the ‘Foto

  • Video e New Media’ course of Accademia Teatro alla Scala.

All artists with motor and sensory disabilities are guaranteed the opportunity to fully benefit from the theatre equipment and services provided by the call.

Deadline: 30 April 2021
