Frankfurt LAB Residency Programme Frankfurt Moves!
Frankfurt Moves! is an initiative by KfW Stiftung to promote artistic exchange and intercultural dialogue. The residency programme in cooperation with Frankfurt LAB promotes international emerging artists in the performing arts. As a production space for rehearsing and performing experimental works in the fields of the performing arts and contemporary music, the Frankfurt LAB has offered residencies since 2014, in order to support artistic experimentation and to create sustainable synergies between the artists in residence and Frankfurt LABs partner institutions (Ensemble Modern, Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company, Hessische Theaterakademie, Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt am Main and Künstler:innenhaus Mousonturm).
The Frankfurt LAB in cooperation with the foundation KfW Stiftung are happy to annually invite four emerging artists from the performing arts sector (performance, dance, theatre, music), who were trained in Africa, Asia, Latin America or the MENA region to apply for a four-week stay in Frankfurt/Main, a metropolis in the heart of Europe.
The artists in residence will be able to use the professional rehearsal spaces of the Frankfurt LAB to work on a new project or to conduct research. The benefits include a fee, costs for documentation, expenses for travel and accommodation (for up to two persons) as well as networking opportunities. At the end of the residency, it will be possible to present the results publicly. You can find the open call and application documents here.
The next residency will be from 25. July to 25. August 2024. The application deadline was 31. January 2024 at 23:59 PM (cet).
