An exciting opportunity to work with John Berkavitch, Ed Stephen and Andrea Spisto on a Residential Research and Development Project, exploring models of devising cross-form work and spokenword-dance theatre. 21st - 25th January 2019

For the 4th year we are returning to the Sackler Space at Roundhouse, Camden this January to continue an exploration of cross-form theatre.


We are offering an artistic development opportunity for up to 20 emerging/midlevel artists from across the country. Participants will join a host of international artists, performers and theatre makers for a

5-day residential R&D process. The project aims to develop models and techniques for generating cross-form performance work combining spoken-word, devised theatre, dance, circus, music and digital content.


The R&D will take place in the Sackler Space at Roundhouse Camden between 21st - 25th January 2019 and is supported by Roundhouse, Arts Council England and

2018 Residency

Application Now Open

The 5 days will be lead by Poet and Director John Berkavitch, choreographer and Performer Ed Stephen and Poet and Clown Andrea Spisto.


There will be guest sessions in writing, devised theatre, circus & acro-balance and contemporary choreography, as well as talks and discussions with industry professionals and internationally acclaimed theatre makers.


At the end of the 5-day residency the participants will be invited to perform as part of an informal sharing at Roundhouse on the evening of the 25th January.
