Artist Residency Programme

May - June 2018 in Oslo and various cities across Europe

Artist Residency Programme

Our new residency programme is designed to bridge the divide between European state theatre institutions and the independent theatre sector. The first year’s programme will promote residencies for emerging theatre directors.

10 young European directors will be selected to participate in 2-4 week residencies at ETC Member Theatres, where they will join a theatre production process through to its premiere. Host Theatre staff actively contribute to the success of the artist-in-residence, who is encouraged to present parts of his/her work to local audiences. Directors will gain insight into new working methods, receive impetus for their own work, further their develop their skills and develop an understanding on how to reach out to different audiences.

In June 2018, the 10 artists-in-residence will unite during the ETC international theatre conference in Oslo, enabling additional exchange with each other and with the European theatre community.

Participation in the programme is open to young directors recommended by ETC Member Theatres and to independent young directors. A call for applications was issued in December 2017. Deadline for members to register interest in this project is 18 January 2018.  Project terms and conditions can be found in Members Section of this website (Member login required.)
