Dinàmiques / En Estudi / En Fabricació

–> Check the basis of the open call HERE
–> Application form

“EN ORIGEN”: DYNAMIC RESIDENCIES
The dynamic residencies are focused to circus artists that are developing a creation and research work that instead of focusing on the production of a show, they are looking for meeting and dialogue with other artists or disciplines. These residencies are spaces for experimentation and sharing research as well as confrontation around a topic. These residencies are addressed to national or international artists or companies who would like to meet other artists or artistic disciplines, to share and investigate together around a particular issue without any production wish.

Resources:
– Free use of a creation studio for 2 weeks;
– A grant of 514 € (taxes included) for transport and per diems expenses.

There is an open rehearsal planned at the end of the residency.

 

“EN ESTUDI”
This new format of residences has been created to give an answer to the companies and artists who are starting the creation of a short act or piece.

EN ESTUDI is a residency thought for artists, duos or new companies that have recently begun the creation of a new project and would like to have an intense creation time in the next months. No preview’s or premiere’s date is required. Objective is to arrive to a short act, a short piece or a 20-minuts work-in-progress.

Resources:
– Free use of a creation studio for 6 weeks;
– A grant of 1.542 € (taxes included) for transport and per diems expenses. In the case the company has more than 3 members La Central may decide to proportionally increase the grant;
– The artistic and production accompaniment by La Central del Circ.

An open rehearsal is planned at the end of the residency.
*For this call one project will be selected.

 

“EN FABRICACIÓ”
This format of residencies has been created thanks to the complicity of several venues in Catalonia like Antic Teatre, the Festival Al Carrer de Viladecans, the Festival Escena Poblenou or the Fira de Circ al Carrer de la Bisbal d’Empordà. These venues will accompany the selected companies (assisting to shows and open rehearsals, proposing additional residencies if necessary, etc.) and programme one of the companies that take part of the Central del Circ companies’pool. Performance conditions will be negotiated between the company and the venue.

These residences are promptly addressed to national companies, although the door remains open to companies from other parts of Europe. They are thought for companies that are working on a show of minimum 40 minuts and need to concentrate in the creation during the next months before presenting the result in a venue.

Resources:
– Free use of a creation studio for 6 weeks;
– A grant of 1.542 € (taxes included), for transport and per diems expenses. In the case the company has more than 3 members, La Central may decide to proportionally increase the grant;
– The artistic and production accompaniment by La Central del Circ.

An open rehearsal is planned at the end of the residency.
