Dampfzentrale Bern supports local, national and international artists in the development of their works: from a working residence to public rehearsals and dramatic coaching, Dampfzentrale Bern tries to provide the perfect assistance to every artist.

A residence lasts one to two weeks. During this period, the artists can live in the apartments of Dampfzentrale and work on their ideas in-house. The residence culminates in a so-called sharing. A sharing is a public rehearsal where artists and interested audience members have the chance to meet.

Technical residences have also been possible at Dampfzentrale Bern since 2019. They provide artists with the opportunity to try out various technical elements such as lighting, stage settings and set design on a large stage. Auditorium activities and layout are also tested during this phase.

Take a look here to see what artists have said about their residence at Dampfzentrale Bern. Artists interested in working in the field of stage design should contact Bianca Gois Barbosa for more information.
