Home for Dance © Pickle Factory and Goethe-Institut Kolkata/Design:Teesta Brahma & Saloni Agarwal

July/August 2021 onwards
Open Call: Home for Dance

A unique project to widen the conversation around repurposing spaces for the arts, and their impact on the city.

When does a city become a home?
When does a space become your own?
How will you create a ‘home for dance?


What is the relationship between movement and space?
How do you bring the two together?


Calling on dancers, movement and performance artists, visual designers, stage and set designers, urban planners and architects based in Kolkata to collaborate in a residency to imagine a ‘Home for Dance’

Building on a sense of home, Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Kolkata in collaboration with the Pickle Factory Dance Foundation invite ideas towards a ‘Home for Dance’ - one which embodies the different elements of movement practice and performance interweaving it with Kolkata’s architecture, ethos and sensibilities, while providing a sense of belonging and refuge.
