Deadline missed!

With a place away from one's own everyday dynamics, we offer with the residency#1 a concentrated space to shape time freely and to research one's own practice in an open-ended way. The residents bring their individual interest in questions with them and can exchange, come together and discuss with other colleagues on site.

Over a period of 7 days, the residency aims to create a place to escape linear production processes for a moment and devote oneself to questions concerning one's own activity and practice. The participants can organise the space in terms of time and content at their own discretion and need, researching both in cooperation with the other participants or on their own. The residency allows for immersion in topic-specific practices and also provides an opportunity for the development of new ideas for both personal and collaborative working practice.

As an open format, the Performing Arts Producer Residency is designed to allow participants to identify their own needs and design the space during the residency accordingly. In the interface function, artistic producers and production managers usually work with a high degree of agility, a lot of responsibility and at a relentless pace. Time for reflection and the development of perspectives and practices is often hampered by precarious working conditions.

The conceptualisation of the residencies for performing arts producers responds to these framework conditions and problems by offering an accompanying space for personal and joint development, for reflection, self-determined deepening of knowledge and reflections on perspectives in this field of activity.

The format addresses all those whose work is located in the broadest sense at the interfaces between art practice and structures, between organisation and administration. It is aimed at artistic producers, production managers, production dramaturges, performing arts managers, distributors, production offices, etc. The format is open to all those who work at the interface between art practice and structures, between organisation and administration. Interested parties can apply as an individual or as a group or collective.

The residency will be accompanied by facilitators from produktionsbande in order to create a framework for all residents, to enable encounters among each other and to be a contact person.In order to bring the participants into contact with each other in advance of the residency and to collect questions and wishes, there will be a digital meeting in advance in which all participants and the facilitators can meet. There will also be a check-in and feedback meeting shortly after the end of the residency.

During the residency, working spaces, accommodation and meals will be provided. Travel costs can be covered. Participants also receive a fee of 800 euros gross.
Details will follow in further communication.

We invite you to an Info Zoom on 21.09.2022, 14:00-14:45. We welcome registrations.

For the application we ask for a letter of motivation [max. 1 DIN-A4 page] and a CV.
