Dancers and choreographers: apply now for the Pina Bausch Fellowship 2017
“It is not about art, also not about pure technique. It is about life, and therefore it is about finding a language for life.“ - Pina Bausch
Finding a language for life – the Arts Foundation of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Pina Bausch Foundation have been following up on Pina Bausch’s credo since 2016 with a co-developed grant programme and award the Pina Bausch Fellowship for Dance and Choreography.
The scholarship holders are getting the chance to gain new experiences and are encouraged to develop their own artistic characteristics with new forms of expression. The Pina Bausch Fellowship is not a project fund, nor is it aimed at the development of new pieces.
For that purpose you need to look for a partner in whose work you are interested in or with whom you would like to cooperate. Cooperating partners can be renowned ensembles, choreographers, and also institutions and personalities from dance- or choreographic training institutions. The plans for the fellowship are to be prearranged together with this partner. Possible projects could be collaboration in form of an externship with a choreographer or a stay at a renowned training institution as a visiting student. Each applicant has to contact their cooperating partner themselves and have the planned project confirmed in a “letter of intent”.
An application for the Pina Bausch Fellowship 2017 is possible from June 1 to September 15, 2016, and only online: fellowship.pinabausch.org. Here you will also find more information about applying.reference:fellowship.pinabausch.org
