“Tanzplan Potsdam: Artists in Residence – Teaching and Research Programme from fabrik Potsdam” is a new “Artists’ Houses Programme” in Brandenburg. The programme is aimed at artists from the fields of dance, choreography and performance and is open to practitioners and theoreticians from all genres. It comprises short-term and long-term residencies as well as the choreography working weeks that are held every summer. Pure research projects are supported as well as productions. In addition to work rooms and accommodation, artistic and technical mentoring and scholarships and travel expense grants are possible. Cooperation with other residency programmes and types of production as well as the “Inter-University Centre Dance – Pilot Project Tanzplan Berlin” are planned.

The programme is open to artists who formulate dance as the central theme of their work and who define discourse with artists and theoreticians from other disciplines and contents as part of the artistic process.
