Institut für Ausufernde Dramaturgien (IfAD)

The "Institut für Ausufernde Dramaturgien" (IfAD) opens a temporary experimental space in the TanzFaktur Köln and invites to play with dramaturgy/s - as framing, perspective, possible practice. The question of why dramaturgy/s is/are enormously important as an artistic means, especially in dance, will be explored during the 4-day residency.





Our INKUBATOR residency is aimed at emerging dance practitioners who are taking their first artistic steps. Over three research phases, the selected “Inkubators” are supervised by mentors from the scene and have space to develop a project.

The residency is announced once a year and applications are currently closed.



The SPONTAN residency lives up to its name: the TF provides the residents with a rehearsal space for one month, and the residency concludes with a showing of the research results in Studio 5. The residency is aimed at young dance makers who are looking for a space to develop their creative and innovative projects.



CROWD – international dance exchange is a collaborative project between partners in Germany, the UK, Finland and the Netherlands working with dance makers to undertake new research into community engaged practice.
