K3 | Tanzplan Hamburg provides three paid eight-month residencies per season to choreographers, who are currently at the beginning of their career and have produced some choreographic work of their own. The residency begins in August and runs until April of the following year. The residency includes mentoring and dramaturgical, technical, and production related support. It moreover links the projects proposed by the choreographers in residence closely to the various other on-going programs of K3.
The goal of the residency is to develop and strengthen the connections between choreographic practice, research, artistic production, and qualification. The length of eight months should provide sufficient time and space for overcoming conventional rhythms of production and open up space for exchange with other artists and interested parties in order to receive new impulses and contacts. Over the course of the residency the three choreographers can each develop a full-length piece that is presented at the end of the residency on three evenings on the stages of Kampnagel.
For choreographers interested in applying to the residency programme, we offer two info zooms:
30 June – 10am (CET)
2 August – 5pm (CET)
Please register with your name and date: tanzplan[at]kampnagel.de
