Nine residency programs between the Academy for Theater and Digitality in Dortmund (Germany) and Azkuna Zentroa Alhóndiga Bilbao (Spain) will be released between April and June this year. The Open Calls are held by the European innovation project ACuTe.
ACuTe is a trend setting, large-scale European innovation project supported by Creative Europe aiming to revolutionize the way theatre and performing arts are produced and performed with emerging technology and new forms of cultural collaboration and competence development. Within this project, nine different residencies will take place bringing together research, development and the application of new innovative methods and technologies within nine different theatre productions. Each of the residencies will focus on a specific innovation and artistic-technological challenge faced by one of the nine ACuTe planned productions.
The 9 residencies will be closely supported by one of two ACuTe partner institutions - the Academy for Theatre and Digitality (Dortmund, Germany) and Azkuna Zentroa Alhóndiga Bilbao (Spain). Residencies will take place at either Dortmund or Bilbao for the research and development component, and then at the theatre / production host for the application component of the residency.
The theatres and production hosts welcoming a residency are
Théâtre de Liège (Liège, Belgium)
Landestheater Linz (Linz, Austria)
