Amfidromo Chorotheatro |non profit organization

Name of Residency: Sharing Stories

Amfidromo Chorotheatro is inviting independent artists to work and create new work during their stay which lasts from 1 to maximum 2 weeks depending on the period and the availability.We do not pay any fee to the artist but we ask from them to give some 2 to 4 one hour workshop during their stay so we can cover every day expenses. We also organize open lectures and meetings with the artists invited mostly from the performing arts field but artists from other art fields are welcome. The artist can work at a choice of two studios one is 10X10 square metres with wooden floor and the other is 13X10 square metres with linoleum.There is a sound system,a dvcamera and a projector/screen. The selection of the artist residency can be done by sending a link of their work and talking in advance to arrange all possible activities during their stay.There is three different periods of residency in December/January, April/May or late August/September.

At the completion of their stay Amfidromo organizes a presentation or performance of the work in our alternative space at Egomio Cultural centre or the Black box theatre.
