What is VARP-PA?

Visegrad Artist Residency Program—Performing Arts (VARP-PA) was launched in 2011 in coop­er­a­tion with Truc Sphérique, Žilina. VARP—Performing Arts pro­vides oppor­tu­ni­ties to host per­form­ing artists or com­pa­nies from and in all V4 mem­ber states and to sup­port con­certed work of tal­ented artists to cre­ate a plat­form for infor­ma­tion exchange and to sup­port the con­tem­po­rary the­atre and dance in Central Europe.
The pro­gram aim at sup­port­ing inno­va­tionexper­i­ment and cre­ativ­ity in the per­form­ing arts—new drama, con­tem­po­rary dance, new cir­cus, phys­i­cal the­atre, visual the­ater, alter­na­tive the­ater, per­for­mance art. The pro­gram is not suit­able for stone the­aters, already devel­oped per­for­mances, or the­ater fes­ti­vals. The pro­gram sup­ports exchanges and con­tributes toward more inten­sive col­lab­o­ra­tion among free­lance artists and per­form­ing arts insti­tu­tions in V4 countries.

Selection cri­te­ria:

  • pro­fes­sional and inno­v­a­tive approach in the per­form­ing arts as demon­strated in the appli­ca­tion form and port­fo­lio (attached doc­u­men­ta­tion of pre­vi­ous work/projects)
  • appli­cants must be cit­i­zens of V4 coun­tries who are at least 18 years old
  • appli­cants can be both indi­vid­ual artists or artis­tic groups (mem­bers of a group shall be from the same country)
