Pina Bausch Fellowship 2017 for dance and choreography

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 codeveloped grant programme and award the Pina Bausch Fellowship for Dance and Choreography.

The fellowship grants for a temporary residence at renowned institutions for dance and choreography abroad, a non-paid participation in an ensemble or a placement with a choreographer at home or abroad and the studies of dance techniques with renowned personalities at home or abroad.

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 fellowship is not a project fund, nor is it aimed at the development of new pieces. Each fellowship can take a minimum of 3 months and no longer than 6 months. It includes a monthly allowance of 2.500 euros and one-time travel expenses. Up to 4 fellowships are granted each year. It is promoted internationally, it has no age-restrictions and aims at single artists from the fields of dance and choreography (dancers and choreographers).
