The TanzFaktur awards up to three residencies per year to dancers and choreographers who are at the beginning of their professional careers, who want to break new ground with their art and who want to explore the content of dance and the possibilities of dance education.
In a total of three work phases lasting several weeks (spring, summer and autumn), the artists/groups will be able to work on their individual questions under the intensive supervision of a mentor team and in mutual collegial exchange.
The Inkubators 2020/21 are:
We are excited to be working together!
Dance scholar Ulrike Nestler, freelance director, dramaturge and production manager Christian Grammel, freelance choreographer Emanuele Soavi and freelance choreographer Reut Shemesh create a lively and sustainable connection between artistic practice and the academic context. Together they will accompany the selected artists during the different work phases, support them and encourage them in their research processes.
In 2020, our schedule shifted slightly: Until then, the Inkubators' research phases were based on the calendar year - they would have started in the spring. From 2020 on, we stick to the structure of the repertory season, with the first phase in autumn, concluding with the (Rh)einfach Festival, the second phase in spring and the last phase in summer, just in time for our Sommerakademie. This way, the Inkubators can make perfect use of our international campus and network.
