Open Call for Residencies at Divadlo na cucky 2017

The open call for artists interested in residency at the Divadlo na cucky theatre in 2017 has been launched. The residency is suitable for smaller groups of artists of contemporary theatre, dance and new circus.

The public benefit organization DW7 launches an open call for artists interested in residency in the premises of the Divadlo na cucky theatre in Olomouc. The residency can take from 1 up to 3 weeks in the period from February to September 2017. Apart from the usual spaces at Divadlo na cucky we are also opening a possibility to stay in a secluded space deep in the woods (available only in July and August 2017).

The artists at Divadlo na cucky will have a smaller black box theatre hall available for free with light and sound equipment or a spacious rehearsal room (so-called Fresco Hall) with minimal technical equipment but bigger space. The halls are suitable for projects in advanced preparatory phase as well as the initial one. The organizers will provide an accommodation, too. Projects which will be officially premiered here in Olomouc, will provide a work-inprogress presentation or workshop for public are preferred.

For artists who want to work isolated from the civilization, without internet connection and other external influences, we are presenting an opportunity to stay at the so-called Kruhovský mlýn (a former mill). The accommodation is provided in an old train carriage near the ruins of the mill which lies in a valley surrounded by woods. We can also arrange premises for regular rehearsals in the nearby village of Laškov. This call is open for architects and visual artists as well. The place can be found approximately 25 km from Olomouc.

Both calls are primarily aimed at artists from the contemporary theatre, dance and new circus field. We would like to ask the artists to send a description of their project in preparation, technical requirements and time schedule to We will choose up to 12 projects. For more information, please call Jan Žůrek (+420 728 180 478) or Simona Vičarová (+420 736 440 903).
