We are seeking choreographers who wish to deepen their artistic expression in collaboration with local organizers and in tune with the city of Falun. Over two weeks, we will together explore the dynamics between art, place and its inhabitants.

In this historical mining town – listed on UNESCO's World Heritage List since 2021 – the winding river was seen as a boundary between "the delightful" and "the grim" side.

Space & Place Falun, in collaboration with choreographers, aims to explore today's Falun. Where are the contrasts here and now, and what choreographies and dialogues can they inspire?

As a choreographer, you will have the opportunity to work in a process where we welcome ongoing collaboration with organizers and audiences. Together, we aim to create a residency characterized by collective exploration of practices where art, organizers, and the audience interact.

Who Can Apply
Choreographers working exploratively in relation to places and people. It is possible to apply together with one or more artistic partners.

Residency Period
The residency lasts for two weeks in autumn 2024, from August 26th to September 8th. The start-up will take place on June 28-30 in Falun (or another period by agreement with selected choreographers).

The residency offers
Fee, accommodation, travel, and workspace. Accommodation and workspace at Polhems Bed and Breakfast with a view of Stora stöten, part of the World Heritage. Production resources are determined in consultation with the project group and regulated based on artistic ideas and scope. A project manager is attached to the residency to assist in organizing and coordinating public activities or other events.

Applications must be received by Riksteatern no later than April 22, 2024. Decisions will be communicated to applicants at early May. Selections will be made by a selection group consisting of representatives in the collaborative project. We may contact applicants with questions during the selection process.
