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 

We’ve created this project with inclusivity in focus, wanting to ensure creative freedom and support the artists in acquiring the skills they need for their ongoing careers. 

In their respective residencies at DYNAMO and Katapult, Kathrin and Emma will enter circus spaces that are created and run by artists and have collaboration and community at heart. From this position, we aim to channel our support and help the artists achieve their goals in the residency! 
The residency is supported by The Danish Arts Foundation

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.

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!
