The Gabriela Tudor Foundation is calling for applications from dance makers, visual artists, musicians, writers, researchers and experts in biodiversity from Austria, Germany, Poland, Ukraine and Romania for their laboratory-residency “Performing Togetherness”, at the Black Sea and in Bucharest, in 2024. 

The residency is a platform for research, cultural dialogue, reflection and innovation where participants are invited to meet and confront different points of view about culture and life and discover a new cultural routine based on the concept of togetherness, seen as the quality of working and belonging to a collective practice.

The project developed during the Performing Togetherness laboratory and additional residency, will be invited to the final What’s Next? in November 2024.
