Artists in residency

Residency: an opportunity to hone your technique and skills

Residency includes support that covers personnel, equipment, a place to work, and housing. Residency helps artists put together projects with no creation/distribution obligation, but a careful look at their work. It includes artistic and administrative advice, if needed. All proposals in all their diversity are welcome. Artists may plan on a residency period that suits their artistic approach (two weeks, one month, or more).

How Does It Work?

Residencies at Les Subsistances are only for professional artists working in the performing arts (theater, dance, circus, performance art, and digital arts). Les Subsistances’s artistic directors select projects on the basis of a specific artistic vision. There is no application. Artists interested in a residency can send their information to:

Host studio: a place for new talent

The host studio hosts theater companies in the Auvergne – Rhône-Alpes Region on the basis of a call for projects. It includes a workspace, technical facilities (only as currently installed), and housing. It is designed to discover and help make new talent known.

How Does It Work?

A selection committee composed of 4 experts from the Auvergne – Rhône-Alpes Region and members of the Les Subsistances boards of directors and supervisors meets twice a year to select projects based on the applications it has received. The first meeting is held in October to select projects for January to July of the following year, and the second is held in May for projects to be hosted from September to December the following year.
