Who: Choreographers, dancers and emerging artists who have a minimum of two years of artistic experience. The artists must have been living and working in Germany for at least two years. 

Section: Performing Arts

Duration: 2 months


The Goethe-Institut Montréal, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique are pleased to offer a choreography residency of two months to two German artists. This residency will allow them to have an important experience in their professional development. A new working environment and meeting other artists will create favourable conditions for creativity and for the evolution of artistic projects, and even for the international standing of a career.
The goal of this residency is to allow a choreographer or dancer living and working in Germany to have a stay of two months in Montreal, accompanied by an artistic partner of his/her choice, also living and working in Germany. This professional partner can come from one of the following domains: the circus arts, new media, cinema and video, interdisciplinary arts, visual arts, chanson, dance, literature and storytelling, handcrafts, music and architectural and theatrical research.
This collaboration in Montreal will allow the artists to develop their artistic relationship further and explore new avenues of creative collaboration in the domain of contemporary dance.
In counterpart, the two artists from Québec will be welcomed at the Fabrik Potsdam in Germany, with the support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
