The Artistic Residencies Programme is the core of the project C.IN.E. The Center is made available to companies, creators, collectives or Performing Arts researchers for the development of creative residences.

The Center provides the physical space and support to the residents. As a counterpart, a commitment is requested with the project and an open session, preview or premiere of the project in residence is organised, as well as a feed-back session or colloquium with the public in accordance with the Audience Development Programme.

The 2018/19 Residency Programme is supported by the Government of the Balearic Islands through the Institut d'Estudis Baleàrics (IEB), the Consell de Mallorca through the Teatre Principal de Palma, the Sineu Town Hall and the Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports.


Thanks to the support of various local and regional entities, such as the Institut Ramon Llull (IRL) or the Institut d'Estudis Baleàrics (IEB), the C.IN.E. runs an intense Internationalization Program that has allowed the organization to create networks with several creation centers in the world and to boost the Balearic companies' knowledge of other markets, which promotes their competitiveness and enables them to develop residencies and projects abroad.

Currently the C.IN.E. is a member of IETM -International network for contemporary performing arts, a network of over 450 performing arts organisations and individual members working in the contemporary performing arts worldwide.

On the other hand, in 2017, the C.IN.E. founded, together with the organizations BIRCA (Denmark) and Domino Association (Croatia), the ISLAND CONNECT network for the exchange of residencies.


The C.IN.E. does not disregard the audience, so the organization engages it through Public Development Programmes. This way, audience is not only involved in the result of an art piece, but also in the creative process. This program is articulated from the idea of generating spaces where work processes can be visible and open and then initiating a dialogue about research and artistic practice. The most common way this program takes is the different work in progress showings, where a feed-back is generated by the audience.

Another of the most successful experiences in this field is La Nit Canalla*, an evening of theatrical creation for young people between 15 and 25 years old that takes place within the framework of the Ciclop festival.

*based on "LA NIT MÉS LLARGA", a C. C. Parc Sandaru project (Barcelona).


Another axis of the C.IN.E.'s project is the training and accompaniment of performing arts professionals. The center understands the profession as a permanent recycling, and therefore organizes and hosts several research laboratories, masterclasses or specialized workshops.

This program is collected during the Ciclop festival, offering in every edition a workshop by a Performing Arts professional and aimed at professionals and non professionals.

visual theatre festival OF SINEU, CICLOP

The C.IN.E. is the headquarters of the Visual Theater Festival of Sineu, Ciclop, an event that the association co-organizes together with the Town Hall of the village and the circus company Circ Bover.

Every year, for three days in mid-September, Sineu is a preferred destination for non-text theater, circus, dance, as well as for the participatory and social scene.

The festival, which every year has a focus region, places special emphasis on Balearic creations and, at the same time, integrates the main programmes of the Scenic Research Center, including work in progress showings of creative residencies, training workshops, or audience development projects with participatory shows and La Nit Canalla.
