Master of Theatre Practices Summer Studios


We are looking for 6 international artists in the field of theatre, dance and performance, who are currently developing a specific artistic project, or look for an opportunity to deepen their ongoing artistic research

What are the Summer Studios?

The ArtEZ Master of Theatre Practices offers the opportunity of a residency programme in the studios spaces in two buildings of ArtEZ: Kortestraat 27, and the Theatrium. The next Summer Studios residency programme will be in 2021. More information will follow in the beginning of 2021.

We welcome choreographs and theatre makers, as well as curators, scenographers, dramaturgs, or writers in the field of the performing arts, such as playwrights or academics. We value that residents take the opportunity of the residence to focus on an ongoing artistic project or a research trajectory, to develop further its potential, and devise its next steps.

To support this development, we offer the mentorship of a distinguished artist or researcher in the field of the performing arts who will accompany the residence, stimulate the process of research and feedback on the outcomes of the work period.

The work during the residency period does not have to result in a public performance — although we are happy to create conditions for you to share your findings. However, we do ask residents to join in a public event where they can introduce themselves, their artistic work and the project of research they are working on during the residency. This allows us to have a public moment in which we meet the community of the MTP and to give back to the locality of ArtEZ and Arnhem.

What is offered?

The MTP offers great working studio spaces, the mentorship of a guest artist, the organization of the public moment as well as it's photo and video documentation, communicating on the artists in residence across our network.

We don’t provide accommodation but will help you finding a place to stay. We are unable to support costs with production and travel, but we will support you with referral letters in case you apply for funding with other organizations.

What are the costs?

The attendance fee of the residency program is 350€. This includes registration in the programme, usage of studio space, individual mentoring for artistic development, technical support, documentation of process and presentation, and communication about residents and their work on the MTP network.

How do I apply?

Applicants fill in an Application Form — available on the link below — where it is asked that they present themselves and detail the artistic project or research that will be developed in the Summer Studios. The deadline for submitting applications will be announced in 2021. After the application is received, a panel within the MTP reviews it and a selection is made. Within two weeks time, we inform applicants about the outcome of the selection procedure.
