Zodiak's open call for productions for the years 2025–2027 is open from Sep 6, 2023, until Oct 4, 2023. We are looking for ideas for Zodiak CoProductions for 2025, for Zodiak Laboratory residencies for autumn 2024 and spring 2025, as well as suggestions for Zodiak CoCommison productions for 2026 and 2027.

Zodiak’s programme is artistically curated. The work of the curators and the programme selections are primarily based on this open call for applications, but some productions will also emerge through collaboration projects and from other sources.

The applications from the open call in autumn 2023 are reviewed by a workgroup consisting of three members, chaired by Zodiak’s artistic director Jenni-Elina von Bagh.

There are three application categories in this open call:

  1. Zodiak Laboratory (autumn 2024 and spring 2025) 
  2. Zodiak CoProduction (2025)
  3. Zodiak CoCommission (2026–2027).

The application deadline for all is October 4, 2023.

Production decisions will be communicated to the applicants by Jan 31, 2024. Please note that participation in the 2025 programme will require flexibility in terms of the final production schedule after the production decisions have been made.

The Zodiak Laboratory and Zodiak CoProduction categories are open for all artists at any stage of their professional careers. The structure of the production support for the CoProduction category depends on whether you are a working group working permanently in Finland or an international applicant. 

For Zodiak CoCommission we require that the applicant is based in Finland and that they have made at least three productions in a professional production enviroment.
