Radar Sofia and the Drama Pact platform are offering a playwright/dramaturg/performer/theatre maker the opportunity to come and stay in Sofia, Bulgaria, meet local theatre operators and form the basis of future partnership(s) or joint new project(s).
The selected resident will receive a scholarship of 600 EUR, plus accommodation for a period оf between one and four weeks in a shared flat in central Sofia. The resident has to arrange his/her own travel to and from Sofia. A letter of invitation will be provided. Of course, the scholarship holder will also be able to partially or fully reimburse their travel expenses from the amount of the scholarship.
The residency has to take place in the period between Nov 25, 2019 and March 30, 2020.
The invitation to come to Sofia is not related to finalising a project or presenting a result from the residency period itself. However, the preferred applicants will be those who are now working (or starting to work) on a project that could strongly benefit from a period of creative stay in Sofia, or draw from its local specifics, or may involve Bulgarian theatre makers, or could have a significant impact on the local context if it takes place or plans presentations in Sofia in the future.
A public presentation of the resident’s previous works plus the option for hosting a workshop is possible and we encourage applicants to make proposals in this respect as well.
A space for a few rehearsals, tests, tryouts, could also be arranged.
