K3 Residency Programme 2019/2020

Frist: Montag, 13. August 2018

Seit 2007 vergibt K3 in jeder Spielzeit achtmonatige Residenzen an drei Choreograph*innen. Das in dieser Form international einmalige Residenzprogramm richtet sich an internationale Choreograph*innen, die am Beginn ihrer beruflichen Karriere stehen und bereits erste eigene choreographische Arbeiten realisiert haben. Die Residenz beginnt Mitte August und dauert bis Mitte April des darauffolgenden Jahres.

Auf Grundlage eines Arbeitsvorhabens bietet die Residenz Zeit und Raum für künstlerische Recherche und Forschung. Ziel ist eine enge Verbindung von choreographischer Praxis, Recherche/Forschung, künstlerischer Produktion und Qualifizierung. Zum Abschluss der Residenz präsentieren die Choreograph*innen eine abendfüllende Produktion.
