La Bonne and Antic Teatre are making a joint open call in support of creation, exposure and development in performance arts.

Alliances between venues powered by grassroots culture are always necessary, but it is particularly in times of upheaval that they become vital.

We at Antic Teatre and La Bonne are well aware of this, which is why we are thrilled, once again, to join forces with our local community and plan the call-out for this year’s performance residencies. This is the third year of Antic Teatre’s involvement, as part of our aim to continue to assist creators in gaining access to spaces in which to work, rehearse and perform.
