international residency



Residency program: Print Arts on Stage

International residency program is a chance for both international performing arts creators and Lithuanian artist living abroad to come work at the Arts Printing house for a short period of time, leave their daily routines, get some fresh inspiration, find possible future partners for collaboration, meet local performing arts community, create and learn together and, of course, present their work process on our stage.

How does it work?

7-10 artists or artistic companies visit Arts Printing House throughout the season. Young or experienced, emerging or well known – all types of creators are provided with spaces to rehears, technical help and consultations from local professionals (directors, dramatists, etc.) if needed. During their time in Arts Printing House, residents invite Lithuanian audience to their work in progress presentations, open rehearsals, discussions and even to see almost finished pieces. Residents are also encouraged to invite local artists to workshops, talks or lectures.

Why residencies?

By organizing Print Art on Stage residency programme, Arts Printing House seeks to provide residency services for international young performing arts creators who implement innovative, alternative, experimental contemporary non verbal, physical, experience based, street theatre as well as dance, new circus, new opera and interdisciplinary projects. This kind of international collaboration attracts performing arts experience, knowledge and innovations to Lithuania, while also being useful to local performing arts community, encouraging its’ development. This residency programme does not only welcome artist – it is always searching for possibilities to send Lithuanian artists to residencies in other countries. One of the most important objectives of this programme is to be able to welcome back Lithuanian artists who live abroad and give them the opportunity to work on their projects and present them in Lithuania.
