RIZOMA Residency

RIZOMA Residency is a stage hub that specializes in contemporary circus art, hosts representatives of the dance segment and is open to projects in other arts.

Main areas of activity

A full-cycle studio-residency that serves as a rehearsal and training space, as well as a system of services that help circus, dance and theater artists create productions from a concept to a finished portfolio.
A platform for the implementation of various forms of projects, such as educational programs, art incubators, festivals, and different types of research.
Project activities: implementation of educational, training, festival and other spheres for children, professional artists and amateurs.
Children’s circus studio: affordable professional circus education for children of Berdychiv and nearby towns and villages.


The residency was opened by Anatoliy Zalevsky in 2006 on the basis of the art studio of his own theater RIZOMA Show.

In 2019 a number of services for artists were launched in test mode, featuring the services of the theater’s own workshops, and services based on collaborations with niche specialists.

In 14 years of work on the site, more than 25 circus and modern dance performances have been created here. Artists from Du Soleil circus, the Artil art incubator, programs of Zelenka Space Up festival and BioSoft Institute have all repeatedly been based in the residence.
