Provinciaal domein Dommelhof,

Belgium (BE)

Member of IN SITU since 2009

Dommelhof is a provincial domain in the province of Limburg, Belgium. Founded as the first cultural centre of Flanders in 1968, Dommelhof evolved into a creation centre for circus, street arts and transdisciplinary arts. Dommelhof is organized in two platforms for artistic development, production, presentation and reflection. The first one is Theater op de Markt’ (TODM) which is focusing on contemporary circus, open air theatre, and site specific creations. TODM is a festival for a broad audience. In 2016 the festival welcomed approximately 120.000 visitors in the city of Hasselt. TODM is also a creation and production festival. In other words a festival that works the whole year on new productions and hosts several companies in residency.
 
The second artistic platform in Dommelhof is C-TAKT which is focusing on transdisciplinary arts. C-TAKT is a co-operation between Dommelhof, C-Mine (Genk), SoAP (Maastricht & Ghent), Platform 0090 (Antwerp & Istanbul), wpZimmer (Antwerp), Musica (Neerpelt) and In Situ (European Network). C-TAKT will set up artistic projects which explore the boundaries of disciplines, and which experiment with innovative forms of audience engagement.
 
Dommelhof offers a comfortable context for the artists in residence of both platforms (TODM & C-TAKT), including: 4 indoor rehearsal and creation spaces (theatre, dance studio, black boxes), outdoor spaces for circus tents, a technical atelier, hotel accommodation. Artists are supported in different ways (logistic, technical, artistic, financial, promotional, etc.). The residency programme results in sustainable and long term relationships with artists and creators. Some creators have become a kind of ‘in-house artists’.
 
Dommelhof /Theater op de Markt/C-TAKT is a member of several European co-operation projects, including IN SITU ACT, IN SITU Platform, CircoSTRADA, CircusNEXT and FACE.  This international network gives the opportunity to monitor innovations in the performing arts field. Moreover Dommelhof has always exchanged international productions with network partners, resulting into enriching presentations for our regional audiences, and to the introduction of Flemish artists in this international network.
