Metropolis Residency 2019: Copenhagen’s urban residency programme is selecting participants – Call for residency

Metropolis Residency is a unique international urban residency programme in Copenhagen aimed at performing artists with an interdisciplinary approach, researching, creating and producing in public space and the public realm.
15 artists working with performing arts will be selected. In 2019, Metropolis organises three residencies of one month. Each residency will have a specific focus and each residency will be for five participants (four international and one Danish). Only one artist per company/project can participate.
The three residencies are:
- Narrating the City – 2-30 June 2019
How can we re-write and re-narrate the city and give place to other voices?
- Sensing the City – 30 June-28 July 2019
Exploring and mapping the city with a sensuous approach.
- Choreographing the City – 11 August-8 September 2019
Moving in and with the city, relating the human body to the city’s flow and the choreography of the everyday.
Selected artists will mainly be working in the city, and the residency base will be on Refshaleøen, the former shipyard area, which is just 10 min. from the Copenhagen city centre on bike.
The residency provides:
- a shared studio space for the group of five and necessary materials/equipment;
- travel to and from Copenhagen;
- accommodation, food, a bike and insurance;
- a minimum bursary.
The deadline for applications is 16 December 2018.
