Theatre in Palm, international project funded by Creative Europe, is hosting a digital residency on 6–10 February 2023.

The project will later host two more residencies during the 3-year-project.

The residency is aimed at emerging theatre artists, such as

  • Theatre or performing arts students,
  • recent graduates (0-5 years),
  • people interested in gaining new professional competences and making new openings in the field of performing arts,
  • other newcomers in the field of professional theatre.

Each participating emerging artist will be paid a 150-400 € grant.

The content of the digital residency

The theme of the residency is ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT. The impulse material and starting point for collaboration in residency work is:

  • Antigone -play and in particular the study of the moral contradictions of the characters in the play of Sophocles
  • Opening Speech of António GUTERRES (U.N. Secretary-General) in the climate conference Egypt on 7th of November 2022
  • as well as chosen object important to emerging artist oneself that symbolizes a value or a thing that you do not want to lose

The selected emerging artists for the residency will receive a pre-task well in advance of the start of the residency. Selected artists will get to know their duo-partner country also in advance.


The aim of the residency and Theatre in Palm in general is to provide a platform for the European emerging theatre artists by e.g. providing concrete opportunities for career advancement and internationalization.

  • In the residency artists share their thoughts and artistic methods collaborating with given impulse materials and based on a pre-task.
  • In the end of the week every duo will present a short (max. 5 minutes) presentation/showcase as a result of the collaboration.
  • In each Theatre in Palm country, 5 selected artists-in-residence will form a group that will work together locally, face-to-face.
  • These groups of 5 artists-in-residence will get to co-operate deeply with another partner country’s group, forming a joint duo residency (online).
  • In addition, all twelve residencies will meet together in joint online meetings.
  • The work is scheduled, organized, and guided by experienced mentors, providing opportunities for deeper transnational co-operation, networking and mentoring of given task in residence.

During the week we work as follows:

  • Working online together: start, intermediate and final seminars to promote work in a large, international group
