Promotion of Emerging Artists: Performing Arts


Tanz im August

The project «Resi_Dance» offers outstanding young choreographers an opportunity to hone their artistic skills and build an international network. During their stay at a renowned institution abroad, the artists receive professional coaching and assistance. The residency includes personal work in a studio and exchange with established dance practitioners from various countries. To provide for such encounters, the residency hosts usually collaborate with an international festival.

The residency programme is designed individually for each artist. Priorities are defined according to the participants’ needs, for example forging contacts with the local dance scene or with international artists on site, artistic or organisational mentoring, theoretical research, etc.
