Metropolis Residencies 2020 – open cal (Copenhagen)
CALL for 10 artists working with performing arts for an international site-specific residency programme in Copenhagen.
Metropolis Residency is a unique international urban residency programme in Copenhagen aimed at performing artists with an interdisciplinary approach, researching, creating and producing in public space and the public realm.
In 2020, Metropolis organises two residencies of one month. Each residency has a specific focus and a co-curating artist. Each residency will be for five participants.
Artists will be working on their own research, but also with a focus on exchanges and collective explorations guided by the co-curating artist.
