Open Call 2022

Each year we reserve one slot in Atelier Nord’s programme for an Open Call where applications are considered by a jury. Last year this process resulted in GERANIUM DREAM’S (Elise Macmillan) show LOSSY which will open in May of this year. In 2020, the jury selected Kim Hankyul’s show Jazz by Jazz, while Victoria Durnak’s The Family Architect was selected in 2019.
