Applications Open: Romilly Walton Masters Award for Experimental Performance Award
Dublin Fringe Festival are proud to partner with Centre Culturel Irlandais for the first time on this exciting residency opportunity for experimental artists to develop new work in Paris.
This award, established in 2016 in memory of the late director, producer, scriptwriter and friend of the CCI, Romilly Walton Masters, supports the making of bold, innovative, experimental performance work in the fields of theatre, music, dance, film or visual art to be experienced by audiences in France and Ireland.

- develop an idea for performance during a residency in the CCI in Paris
- show the embryonic performance piece as a work-in-progress
- showcase the final work in Paris
- present the final work in Ireland as part of Dublin Fringe Festival.
