Who can apply?

Performance artists that practice professional performing arts. In the assessment of what constitutes professional performing arts, we assess the applicant’s educational background and experience in the performance arts and the content and form of the project.

At least one of the applicants is required to have at least three years of experience as a professional performance artist. We primarily seek professional performance artists that have received economic support from PUS (Projektstøtteudvalget for Scenekunst).

You do not have to be a part of an established company with a CVR number to apply.

The performative artistic expression must be a central part of the progress. Since the project revolves around cross-aesthetic collaboration one or more of the applicants can also be professional artists from other art forms – such as musicians, visual artists, and more.

How to apply?

You apply by filling out an application form and by uploading a short description of the artistic exploration.



The Development Platform is in charge of curating the artistic explorations.
In curating for this project we prioritize collective and artistic collaborations across genres of art and artistic exploration with a strong artistic intention and vision. We prioritize diversity in methods and projects where artistic exploration is the core of the project idea.
