Kinitiras, member of Res Artis, created the first residency centre for performing arts in Greece in December 2008. Until August 2019, it hosted numerous artists throughout the world from the fields of dance, theatre and performance.
This year, we move on and create another flexible model of residency that will connect artists from Greece and the rest of the world without Kinitiras’ having a permanent base.
The Goethe-Institut Athen, the French Institute of Greece and Kinitiras in collaboration with Flux Laboratory Athens are offering a residency program for artists in spring 2020 in Athens, with the support of the Franco-German Cultural Fund.
TRANSITION unites five artists from Africa and Europe who will live and work together in Athens for a three-week residency program. They will experience the everyday life in the city and through the co-existence and interchange they will be inspired to create one or more community dance performances within the scope of TRANSITION. We invite artists from Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Congo, France, Germany, Greece, Nigeria and Senegal specialized in community dance performance to apply for this shared residency. The artists should be fully committed to follow the program during three weeks in Athens (March 15th – April 5th 2020).
Applications’ deadline: January 24th 2020, midnight (Greek time)
The In Progress Feedback Festival (IPFF), the festival that focuses on the creative process and the relationship between the creator and her/his audience instead of being a product oriented process, will take place on March 27th-29th 2020 and April 3rd-5th 2020 in Athens. Greek and foreign artists who live in Greece are invited to send their applications before January 10th 2020. Those who are interested should be available for rehearsals and performances from March 20th 2020 to April 5th 2020 (the exact 10 days between those dates will be announced soon).
This year’s thematic umbrella for all Kinitiras’ actions is the idea of TRANSITION.
Applications’ deadline: January 10th 2020, midnight (Greek time)
