SubScena for theatre, performance and hybrid art is dedicated to supporting original performance, dance, circus and theatrical styles. SubScena connects and develops diverse practices of avantgarde artists and art collectives, via introducing and developing independent, original and stimulating artwork in the project’s alternative framework.
SubScena’s year round programme is based on local, regional and international productions & coproductions, guest performances & residencies. We welcome any and all experimental theatrical practices – disobedient and intimist; nonprofit and sustainable; subversive and independent.

Our support is specifically oriented towards creative endeavours of emerging performance groups and artists aiming to overcome geographical, national, religious, gender and ethnic qualifications in their national or international collaborations and coproductions. By providing a safe production and collaboration space for residents and visiting artists – we aim to empower the independent DIY and underground performance scene in Croatia and beyond, and to support artistic research and the creation of new performance modes. Following the production stage, we are happy to provide an open venue for public performances, presentations and discussions to enable an active public insight.

These residency and performance opportunities are open to performance artists innovating their work via avantgarde and experimental practices.
