We are looking for innovative companies who would benefit from using the rehearsal facilities and working spaces at the centre de création. The centre is located in the heart of the Dordogne region in South West France. The centre de création was originally a working farm, harvesting tobacco, wine and walnuts now fully converted into studios, rehearsal spaces, offices and accommodation. It is a beautiful, quiet place that facilitates research, development and creation. Have a look at the venue, working spaces, and accommodation pages to see our wonderful place.

We offer two types of residencies:

  • independent – by negotiation dependent on project status

  • redfest – for artists interested in performing at our biannual festival

independent residency conditions

  • professional artists only

  • continuous residency period (timeframes negotiable)

  • transport and food at the expense of the artist

  • in winter months, heating is charged on top for the working spaces (we recommend coming here in the warmer months)

  • during residency artists are encouraged to run a 2-hour workshop in their discipline (artists receive a percentage of the workshop fee)

redfest residency conditions

We offer redfest residencies as part of the festival – aimed at companies with little to no funding who are interested in performing their work (in progress) to a supportive audience. Check out our working spaces and testimonials from previous residents.

  • one to two-week continuous residency (cannot break up weeks)

  • all residencies must take place before redfest in August
