Spoffin LAB 2016

Frist: Sonntag, 31. Januar 2016

Spoffin LAB is a residency project supporting young theatre artists who are in the process of finishing a new project created for public space (streets, squares, parks, etc.). The residency takes place in Amersfoort, The Netherlands, during the month of August and consists of:

  • free use of a residency space during a week or more at the end of August (maximum duration: 1 month);
  • free use of a guesthouse during the residency;
  • at least two performances during the Spoffin festival (August 26-28), including the premiere;
  • 100% of the money ‘from the hat’;
  • help of a few volunteers during the performances, depending on your needs;
  • assistance from the festival in finding the right site or venue for the performances;
  • publicity support;
  • possibility to showcase a short excerpt of the performance (4-8 minutes) during Spoffin Amuses, the official opening event of the festival (August 25);
  • possibility for a short presentation for our professional guests during the Spoffin PRO meeting (August 27-28);
  • all lunches and dinners during the festival.

What you need to know

It is important to understand that you will have to work very indepently. Spoffin cannot offer production facilities. You will have to cook, wash and clean during the residency and deliver both the residency space and the guesthouse afterwards in the same (or better) condition as when you entered. If something gets damaged or lost, you will have to replace it. Spoffin will not be able to support you with travel costs or any fees. Of course we will support you with an official invitation, which may help you to get additional funding for the project.
