The Anti Ism Project


Together with Katapult in Berlin, we have chosen 2 artists for the
Anti Ism Project! Welcome and congratulations to Emma Hörnell
& Kathrin Wagner 

In january they will start there residency at Katapult in Berlin and end at Dynamo in Odense.A big thanks to everyone that applied, so many exciting, interesting, and cool projects out there.

Built on a shared ethos of community and inclusivity, Katapult (DE) and Dynamo (DK) are committed to serving the European performance art scene with accessible and affordable residency spaces. We are delighted to partner up and invite artists from all walks of life to participate in our shared-residency project.

This was the open call:

We are calling for fresh works of circus art based on the theme of “inclusivity”. The theme is born out of our recognition that many artists are sidelined from traditional
residency/funding programs due to life circumstances outside their control and gaps in their skill set.
Therefore, our application process is jargon-free and we aim to make it as accessible as possible to
people regardless of their level of formal education. All we care about is your artistic vision and integrity.

How to apply:
All you need to do is submit a 5-minute video with the theme “inclusivity” – take 2 minutes
to introduce yourself and your idea, and then demonstrate your idea with your chosen discipline in
whatever way is possible to you. The video can be in any language, we will find the translator.

Send an email to with the subject “The Anti-ism project”
In the email there has to be one, and only one, link with the 5 minute video, nothing else.

Application deadline: 16.11.2020
The chosen artists will start their residency with a week at Katapult, starting on the 4th of Jan, 2021.
They will immerse themselves in the vibrant cultural and artistic scene of Berlin, before taking their ideas to Dynamo, for a second week of residency. They will rehearse and perform their result of residency showing with the technical assistance needed to finalize their performance for the stage.

The result of residency showing will take place at Dynamo on the 19.01.2021
While we will provide all the necessary help – from conceptualisation to performance – we will do sowithout taking control of your ideas.

Should you need it, we will also help you understand your way
around funding applications, giving you the tools to create and sustain works of art.
We encourage interdisciplinary performing arts but the focus is on the circus.

We look forward to hearing and seeing your ideas!
