Residency Programme for Performing and Live Arts

Theatro Polis OPAP

April – November 2021

The Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre, Associated with the Pierides Foundation [NiMAC] inaugurates in April 2021 the first Residency Programme for Performing and Live Arts at Theatro Polis OPAP. The programme will present seven artists and artistic groups which were selected through an open call that was announced last February.

The artistic proposals which will be presented at Theatro Polis OPAP are based on the artists’ and artistic groups’ research during April – November 2021.

The objective of the residency programme is to connect to the city, and present to the

audience(s), emerging and established artists and artistic groups from the fields of

performance and live arts. The programme focuses at hosting and supporting participants during the research period of their proposed project.

As part of their residency, the selected applicants are requested to organise and present public events, which will be announced in due time.
