Weekly Calendar

Creation Residencies - Impact Project

The Conseil des arts de Montréal, Les 7 Doigts, Cirque Éloize, En Piste and TOHU are launching the first edition of this pilot project.

This project for an arts collective or a circus arts organization will provide an opportunity to develop original creations through research and exploration of new circus arts dramatic writing, unfettered by the constraints of presentation. It also aims to promote “auteur” circus works and the emergence of new aesthetics. 

The recipient will receive a Conseil des arts de Montréal grant to carry out a four-week residency which will provide an opportunity to achieve an initial stage of documented development in order to then seek out partners and public and private sources of funding. The recipient will also receive professional guidance and excellent networking opportunities from the circus arts national network En piste.
