For artists

Our mission at DYNAMO is to create sustainable conditions for artists, offer space, creative and production support to individual artists and companies within contemporary circus or physical stage arts, and promote the artform of contemporary circus in Denmark and the Nordic Region. With residencies, workshops, masterclasses and co-productions, we aim to contribute to the infrastructure of contemporary circus in Denmark, as well as offer new opportunities to artists.


Every year, we welcome around 10 companies and artists in residency, for a stay that can be anything between 3 days and 1 month long.

Our open calls have specific focus, thematic, and target, yet we invite broad interpretations and forms of engagement with the presented theme.

The residencies take place every Spring and Autumn, with an average length of one month; we cover an artist fee, travel and accommodation expenses.In addition to specific calls, we’re always open to new and innovative ideas, not related to the open call theme – you can produce your full performance at DYNAMO or just develop ideas during a residency.

The residency stay in DYNAMO is an exploration process, there is no requirement for an end product to be created. The residency typically ends with an open viewing/sharing for interested audiences as well as other artists and people working in the field of circus and performing arts.

If you have ideas for collaborations or residency write to or follow our open calls.
