Open Call: PimOff Theater (Milan) Residency for Contemporary Dance
Citofonare PimOff reaches its 8th edition and as every year launches an international call for contemporary dance projects in the creation phase, which have never debuted, in Italy or abroad, and which have never been presented to the public in finished form. It will be possible to send applications from 15th March to 30th April 2022.
The winners of Citofonare PimOff are assigned a period of artistic residency, from one to two weeks in the period from March to May 2023, which includes: the use of the theatre room and its equipment; financial support up to a maximum of € 3,000; technical assistance; organizational, communicative and promotional support. The goal of the residency is not the staging of an accomplished show, but the artistic research. Precisely for this reason, each residency ends with an open rehearsal of the project: a moment of encounter and exchange between artists and the public.
Initially designed as an open call addressed to every sector of the performing arts, during its editions, Citofonare PimOff has defined its focus on dance, a sector that in the Italian context is among the most sacrificed. However, there remains a trace of its original form and of the heterogeneous activity of PimOff: a trace that translates into the promotion of a hybridization between the arts and knowledge, a resource considered fundamental for restoring the complexity of our time.

We strongly suggest you to send your application well in advance of the deadline. It is possible to ask questions on the programme and the application process writing to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org before the 20th April 2022
