TSC residencies are meant for artistic work such as creation of new works, rehearsing, or developing the artist’s individual movement language, choreographic material or artistic vision. Once a year, TSC holds a special sound residency focused on the relationship between sound and movement in a lab-like work setting. A sound residency’s goals can be in multidisciplinary experimentation, production oriented creative process or developing one’s artistic expertise. Artists for the sound residencies will be chosen through an international application process. The sound residencies are held in collaboration with Genelec, our partner behind the immersive sound system of TSC Studio.
Artists are chosen to take part in TSC residencies through an open application process. The residencies entail a 1–4 week long working period in Tero Saarinen Company’s recently opened TSC Studio. Taking into consideration each residency’s particular goals and needs, the residency period can include customized events for audiences and artistic or production-related mentoring from TSC’s permanent staff members. The sound residency’s will have the studio’s complete sound system at their use, other residencies’ technical parameters will be discussed individually.
The first open call for applications for spring – summer 2021 will take place in November-December 2020. The open call will entail of two possible residency periods. The first residency will take place weeks 12–13 (22.3.–4.4.2021) and second on weeks 22–23 (31.5.–13.6.2021).
The application process for the first sound residency in summer 2021 will take place in late 2020 – early 2021. The sound residency will take place on weeks 26–27 (28.6.–11.7.2021).
