The Watch & Talk residency is looking to invent favourable conditions to true artistic effervescence. Based upon a mentoring system, young artists are invited to immerse themselves in all the works presented at the festival, to enjoy dynamic research within an allocated time frame, through exchanges and without any further obligation. Under the guidance of a professional of the performing arts, for 11 days, participants engage in critical and constructive analysis though dialogue and developing thought with the view to the festival’s program. They will also have unique opportunities to have artists invited by the festival, making private presentations of their work. Should they wish so, they could also participate in a writing workshop.

Watch & Talk is the result of an on-going collaboration between Migros Culture Percentage and far° festival.
