Every year in early January, the Tanztage Berlin festival opens the contemporary dance season in Berlin. Since it was founded in 1996 by Barbara Friedrich and Benjamin Schälike, the festival is an integral part of the Berlin dance community and an important platform for young and upcoming choreographers. The Tanztage Berlin will take place again from January 8th through the 18th, 2014 at the Sophiensæle in Berlin.

The festival provides young choreographers who are based in Berlin a framework for their productions and performances.

APPLICATION FOR PREMIERES AND EXISTING PRODUCTIONS
Tanztage Berlin can support a limited number of productions that have their PREMIERE at Tanztage. For these productions  Tanztage Berlin offers a financial co-production support of 500 – 2000 €, depending on the expenses for performers and material. Please apply with a concept of the project, a DVD or internet link of previous works, a schedule with rehearsal-times, a budget, and the CV’s of all participating artists.

Additionally, EXISTING PRODUCTIONS can be remounted at Tanztage. Please apply with a description of the performance, video documentation of the work (DVD or internet link), technical requirements, CV’s of the participating artists, and a documentation of previous works.

APPLICATION FOR THE FORMAT „STRIP DOWN TO EVERYTHING!“
Tanztage 2015 will offer a special format, in which young choreographers will develop short one-on-one dance performances. By reducing the audience to one spectator, radical experiments with intimacy and interaction but also with distance and foreignness become possible. Part of the assignment is the “no tech rule” and concentration on direct encounter. The performances that will be created in this framework should be about 5min long and will be repeated 24 times a day for two days.

Tanztage Berlin offers coaching for concept development and realization during the working process. If you are interested in working within this format, please apply with an initial outline of an idea, documentation of your works, and your CV.

GENERAL RULES
Due to  Tanztage Berlin’s subsidy and budget the following rules apply to all applications:
there is no possibility to cover travel-costs
there is no possibility to cover accommodation-costs
there will be a guaranteed evening fee of 100 € for each performer in the festival
