TENT house for contemporary circus

Become 'Maker for a week' in 2023. During this course, TENT offers a rehearsal space to work on short-term research.

The only condition for the research is that it has a link with circus. At some point during the week, there will be a presentation, including an aftertalk with an audience of professionals, partners, and locals. What this presentation will look like, will be decided together with you. Because TENT specifically works with artists based in The Netherlands, it is required that your working field is in the Netherlands. 

CIRKLABO
From 2023, we will enter a collaboration with our partners Cirklabo. With both our residency programmes, we will join forces around the theme of inclusion and diversity. In doing so, we will select a maker who will be supported by both organizations. 

WHAT DO WE OFFER
- A suiting rehearsal space in Amsterdam, the space will differ per maker.
- Productional, artistic and technical support and a budget of 1000, - euros, free to spend on travel costs, materials, or other costs related to the research.
- Next to that, we will help with publicity by promoting your presentation and introducing you as maker on our socials and website. 

WHAT DO WE ASK FROM YOU
- We request that you mention TENT as a partner in future publicity regarding your research/project. Please contact us if you are not sure how best to go about this.
- We will record a podcast with each maker, Circus Whispers. In the podcast, we discuss your makership, your plans and your experience.
- At the end of your research week, there will be an evaluation and a follow-up discussion with the TENT management.

WHAT DO WE NEED
To get an idea of you research and ideas, we ask you to explain them in the form underneath. Don’t hesitate to explain you answers broadly, so we get a clear idea of your artistic view. We use these answers for the selection, so make sure that we can go along with your ideas and work process.

DEADLINE Open Call: November 1, 24:00
SELECTION: at the start of December
APPLY via google.form

The form can be completed in English as well as in Dutch. If selected, the submitted texts and images will be used as basis for the promotion of the Maker for a Week course. More info via info@tent.eu.
