Sweden introducing residency artists

In August, Intercult will host their third Theatre in Palm residency in Stockholm. This time the residency venue is Teater Giljotin. The selected residency artists will work together within the themes Social impact and society and Environmental Sustainability and will be guided by the choreographer Robin Jonsson.

Each of the selected artists bring a unique approach and skillset to the residency. The idea is that the different talents and cultural backgrounds will compliment each other in an interesting way. The Stockholm residency participants will also have the unique opportunity to showcase the results of the residency during the Theatre Academy, a 3-day performing arts seminar that is part of the Stockholm Fringe Festival (#STOFF2024). Read more about the Academy here.
