The BAU AIR residency is a tailored four-week program for independent creators in the performing arts, that focuses on artistic research, in-depth exploration, and experimentation. We build connections between makers and the cultural field and organize public events. In doing so, BAU gives an impulse to the artistic development of dance and performance makers, and the arts field.

Open call
Each fall we set out an open call for creators' research plans. In January of the following year, we announce the selected residents. Subscribe to our newsletter if you wish to stay informed and follow us on Instagram and/or Facebook.


The BAU AIR DOTE residency is a collaboration between BAU and Dancing on the Edge. It provides four weeks' time and space for a performing artist, whose work resonates with both BAU and DOTE, to dive deeper into their artistic practice and research without the pressure of producing a finished piece of work.
BAU and DOTE find their common spark in the belief that performing artists should be able to be and think freely in the pursuit of their artistic goals. Moving between different borders, bodies, histories and (pre)conceptions.

The BAU AIR GREENHOUSE is a residency where the artist is selected and supervised by the Amsterdam development network GREENHOUSE. A residency means four weeks time for artistic research, exploration and experimentation in one of the BAU studios. GREENHOUSE can use its extensive network to provide new relevant connections in the city.
