The theme of the retreat is dealing with scores/planning in dance, music, scenography and architecture


The residency will take place in the historical premises of the Castle in Žďár nad Sázavou with its unique genius loci which will thus become a spot for reflexion and dialog, interdisciplinary encounters as well as sharing of questions, concerns and experience in the friendly and relaxed environment. The retreat's objective is mutual international interdisciplinary inspiration, development of own conceptions and seeking creative process as well as development of the own work and perception of it thanks to new revelations and shared activities.

As part of the residency there is not any pressure regarding production; the artists will have sufficient time and space for contemplation and triggering of their exploration and searching activities. The call is therefore intended for the artists who would like to devote their time to research the creative process in the interdisciplinary context as well as broaden their horizons with the topics such as the way of working with scores/planning, reconstruction, interpretation or creativity.
