As part of House of Panama, we offer year-round residencies for circus artists and collectives who want to work on research, experimentation and creation.

We provide our studio (performance floor 12m wide x 12.4m deep and 7.40m high) with rigging facilities and our foyer/kitchen for a period of one to two weeks.

We also offer artistic, business or technical support. Depending on your needs, you can work half a day with someone from our artistic team or our organisation, with one of our core performers or our associated artists.

If it suits the phase your work is in, you can end the residency with a public showing. We will then be happy to help you invite an audience and organise the presentation.

Who can apply?
Anyone working with circus or a crossover of circus and another discipline. No matter what stage of your career you are in.

How does it work?
You submit an application using this form.

We will reach out for you to get a clearer picture of the person and the intended stay. If your request matches what we can offer and there is space available, we will schedule your residency.

We have a limited number of spots available for residencies with support. Therefore, we select based on our criteria. See our selection criteria here.

Do you only want studio space to work in, but don’t need any further support? Then you can apply here.

Sign up for a residency without support here.

Our spots for unsupported residencies are also limited, only here we do not apply selection criteria. To respond quickly and effectively to demand, we distribute on the basis of incoming applications.
