UNGA DRAMATEN INTERNATIONAL AND NATIONAL WRITING RESIDENCY PROGRAMME
Unga Dramaten is part of the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm and exists to create performing art for children and young people between the ages of 3-15. We strive to make brave, innovative and generous art that puts children at the forefront of the experience. We believe that high quality performing art is important at all stages of life and aim to present newly written works to our audiences.
Unga Dramaten wants to act as a springboard for emerging artists, but also to make room for experienced artists to further develop their artistry. We aim for this Residency to act as a platform where new meetings, exchanges and artistic exploration can take place.
The Writing Residency for young audiences is a newly launched programme aimed at professionals working within the performing arts or academia who want to explore an idea, question or theme for children and young people aged 3-15 years old.
The residency takes place 21 May – 12 June 2024 and the application deadline is 1st February 2024.
A decision of who is selected will be made during March.
Application must be presented in English or in a Scandinavian language.
The residency participant is expected to be present during the entire period.
