RESIDENCIES – CREATION SUPORT PROGRAM

La Central del Circ hosts, two times per year, calls for residencies as part of its creation suport program. These calls devide the residencies in different cathegories. Each modality faces a  specific moment of the creative process, and replies to the needs of the creative transit in which the company currently is.

Through this call we select up to:

  •  En Origen
  • En Estudi
  • En Fabricació
  • Preview

 

Residencies are held during the two following semesters after the call’s resolution. The dates will be fixed depending on company needs and studios availability.

NEXT CALL: END OF NOVEMBER 2018 (For residencies from January 2019 to January 2020)

EN ORIGEN : DYNAMIC RESIDENCIES

The dynamic residencies are focused to circus artists who are developing a creation and research work, and instead of focusing on the production of a show, are looking for meeting and dialogue with artists from other artistic disciplines. These residencies are  a place for experimentation, giving dynamism, shaking and sharing research as well as confrontation around a topic, another way to practice and an artistic approach that is not circus.

FOR WHOM?

These residencies are addressed to national or international artists or companies who would like to meet artists from other artistic disciplines, to share and investigate together around a particular issue without thinking about a production. The residency will be the opportunity for one or more circus artists to meet:

– One or more artists who are not training circus and with whom the circus artist never
has been working;
– One or more professionals or experts who are not connected with circus but will feed
the research with their approach.

 

“EN ESTUDI” RESIDENCIES   

This format of residencies has been created to give an answer to the companies and artists who are starting the creation of a short act or piece of a maximal length of 20 minutes.

FOR WHOM?

These residencies are promptly addressed to national companies, although the door remains open to companies from other parts of Europe. EN ESTUDI is a residency thought for artists, duos or recently created companies that have 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. The objective is to arrive to a short act, a short piece or a 20-minutes work-in-progress.

 

“EN FABRICACIÓ” RESIDENCIES

This format of residencies targets the companies and artists who are finishing the creation  of a more than 20 minutes piece. During and after the residencies the complicity of several venues in Catalonia (like Antic Teatre, the Festival Al Carrer de Viladecans, the Festival Escena Poblenou, the Fira de Circ al Carrer de La Bisbal d’Empordà or the FestiCAM d’Amposta) is encouraged, so they can accompany the creation processes of the selected companies, attending open rehearsals, offering more residencies and, wherever possible, contracting one or more companies, that take part of La Central del Circ companies’ pool.

FOR WHOM?

These residencies are promptly addressed to national companies, although the door remains open to companies from other parts of Europe. They are residencies for companies that are working on a long format show of more than 20 minutes and need to work on, during the next months before presenting the result in a venue.

 

PREVIEW RESIDENCY

One project will be selected among all the applications.

FOR WHOM?

This residency is for national or international professional circus companies that are creating a show and are reaching the end of the creation process. It targets especially Catalan and Spanish companies but the door remains open to companies from other parts of Europe. Required is that the project is at a final stage, foreseeing an official premiere in 2018.
