Call for applications: contemporary dance residency in Germany


Québec choreographers and dancers who have practiced for less than two years have until September 10, 2013 to register for a choreography residency in Potsdam, a city with a population of 150,000 on the outskirts of Berlin.

This international residency is made possible through cooperation between the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ), Fabrik Potsdam international centre, Goethe Institute Montréal, Circuit-Est choreography centre and the Québec Government Office in Berlin.

Its objective is to enable a Québec choreographer or dancer to reside abroad, accompanied by an artistic partner of his or her choice. The professional partner may come from one of the following fields: circus arts, digital arts, cinema and video, multidisciplinary arts, visual arts, popular song, dance, literature and storytelling, arts and crafts, music, architectural research and theatre.

Working as a pair in Potsdam will help them develop their artistic relationship and explore new avenues for creative collaboration in contemporary dance.

Residency length, grant amount and location

The residency lasts two months, from August 15 to October 15, 2014. The amount of the grant is $7,500 for each recipient and covers the following costs: transportation, insurance, housing and per diems. The artists are responsible for finding their own housing.

Fabrik Potsdam will provide the Québec artists with a work and research space, its office infrastructure and professional follow-up by its artistic directors.

The Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec seeks to broaden the influence of artists, writers, arts organizations and their works in Québec, Canada and abroad.
