We’re delighted to announce, as part of a long term reciprocal partnership between Institut Ramon Llull (Catalonia) Institut d’Estudis Baleàrics (Balearic Islands) and Trapezi Festival that we have selected four companies to form part of an upcoming international residency programme.

SeaChange will support these Catalan and Balearic artists to develop shows, not only for Spanish, but for English speaking audiences, with a focus on collaborations between Catalan, Balearic and UK artists, and opportunities to access wider markets across the UK and other areas of Europe.

The selected companies from the recent call-out are:

  • Dulce Duca – developing a new show called Sweet Drama, fusing juggling with rappers and urban arts.
  • La Cia. PakiPaya – developing Quick Quick Slow, an amusing and surreal circus show.
  • Collectivo Terzo Livello – a new site-specific show with audience interaction.
  • Cia. Pau Palaus – exploring the issue of refugees with clowning, mime and gestural theatre.

We’ll be working with these artists on a range of creative projects over an intensive period of 8 months from October 2018 to June 2019, providing them with a bespoke package of support. They, in turn, will work with us with regular  contributions to our programme of classes, events and festivals, including the Out There Festival.

The residency programme will be developed with support from Institut Ramon Llull, Institut d’Estudis Baleàrics and Trapezi, the Circus Fair of Catalonia.
