Gessnerallee is a home for Zurich-based artists and for those coming from abroad. Many protagonists making up the local drama, dance, performance and music scenes have been closely related to the cultural landmark for years. And it is integral to us to regularly engage in novel collaborations with young artists and Gessneralle newcomers!
Our House Artists Program offers local artists various tools and spaces for the advancement of their creative work—with the flexibility to result in “output” or not. What we aim for is the interplay and lively exchange between generations and national and international networks as well as a dedication to non-hierarchical course formats.
All artists who are coproducing with Gessnerallee are featured here on the list.
How to apply as an Artist-in-Residence?
All independent theatre troupes and dance ensembles who are publicly funded by the City of Zurich and who have produced pieces with Gessnerallee already belong to our growing family of artists-in-residence. The same is true for a number of national and international artists who through diverse projects, i.e. the Lab, are closely associated with us. If you would like to co-produce with Gessnerallee and are applying for grant funds for the first time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and share with us the following information:
