We view the Support for Creation programme as a means by which we can accompany processes of artistic creation that are clearly motivated, in terms of research and innovation, by street arts and public space, and integrate the manifold relationships between artists, professionals, the market, the city and citizenry.
Every year, a selection of projects and a residency plan will be agreed on that will integrate the corpus of FiraTàrrega coproductions. The organization’s logistics as well as its technical and promotional structure will be at the service of creators, who will have the opportunity to stay in Tàrrega to develop and rehearse their performances, which will be performed in open rehearsals.
Projects submitted must comply with one of these categories:
- Planter. This is for companies presenting their shows for the first time and who require an art residency and rehearsal in a public space.
- Margins. Established companies that are already selling shows. Their projects require an art residency or rehearsal in a public space.
- Sprout. For projects that are completing their production process and need to perform an in situ adaptation test in the city.
- Fallow. Projects that have escaped the logic of immediacy and rapid consumption. The première will be performed in its second year of development at FiraTàrrega.
Those companies interested in presenting their application must complete the registration form between 1st July and 30th September, thereby accepting the specific conditions of the Support for Creation programme and attaching a technical residency form indicating the category; detailing the number of people; rehearsal space requisites; project timetable and budget; a market roadmap (contacts to be made; spaces where the project has been presented)... In the event that a project is selected, the residency is coordinated jointly with the company. As of 1st December, FiraTàrrega will inform interested parties whether or not they have been selected.
