Open Call Residency Fellowship for Contemporary Dancers and Performers

04.06.2020 |

Produktionszentrum Tanz + Performance (a membership organisation for independent dance) is collaborating with the Akademie Schloss Solitude centre in Stuttgart to award a residency fellowship to contemporary dancers and performers. This is being offered in the context of TANZPAKT Stuttgart, an initiative of the Cultural Office of the State Capital of Stuttgart.

By inviting artists from all over the world to apply who are not active as artists in the administrative district of Stuttgart, the participating institutions seek to improve networking and collaboration in Stuttgart’s freelance dance scene, and to facilitate work on choreographic practice. Creating space for inquiry, research and artistic production is a further goal. Willingness to present one’s own work and interact with the independent dance scene in Stuttgart are prerequisites.

Two fellowships are being awarded. One from January – June 2021, and the other from July – December 2021.

The residency artist will benefit from optional use of a rehearsal hall, the possibility to lead the weekly professional training session at the Produktionszentrum Tanz + Performance, or to participate in this and other workshops & a free, furnished studio apartment for living and working purposes.

At the end of each residency stay, the creative results will be presented in a format chosen by the fellowship holder. The opportunity to participate in festivals which may take place is offered (e.g. the ‘SEEDS Dance Laboratory’ in September 2021).

The open call deadline is Tuesday 30th June 2020. Detailed information can be found here.

The fellowships are funded by the TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund with the support of the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media and by the State Capital of Stuttgart.
