The Zodiak Co-Production category resembles the old Zodiak co-production model. We are now calling for applications in the Zodiak CoProduction category for productions that premiere in2023. Zodiak will be involved in the productions as a co-producer, but it is mandatory that the projects have other sources of funding also.

As stated earlier, we can select only a few suggestions into our programme from this autumn’s open call. This is due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our scheduling.

The CoProduction support includes:

  • a co-production support of appr. 17 000 € (alv 0%) (level in 2020, will be revised yearly)
  • reimbursement for administration costs (revised yearly)
  • approximately 4 to 6 weeks of studio time in 2022 or 2023
  • at least 1 week of rehearsal time on the stage before the premiere

The aim is to have 8 to 12 performances on the Zodiak Stage or in some other venue.

The deadline for CoProduction applications is Wednesday, 3 Nomember 2021. Please use this form to submit your application to this category:

Zodiak's co-production contracts changed in early 2021. In the future, CoProduction contracts will not be concluded with private individuals, but Zodiak's contractual partner must be a legally registered entity that can invoice Zodiak for co-production support. In Zodiak Laboratory category, a fee can also be paid to an individual.

At the time of concluding the co-production agreement (approximately ½ years before the performance period), the working groups selected for CoCommision and CoProduction productions must have a background association, sole trader, cooperative or limited liability company. Note! You can apply in this call even if you do not have such background community yet. Zodiak supports selected workgroups in finding or creating a background community, if needed.
