Applications are open for the Pina Bausch Fellowship 2020 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 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 to develop their own artistic characteristics with new forms of expression. The Pina Bausch Fellowship is not a project fund, nor is it at the development of new pieces.
For that purpose, you need to look for a partner in whose work you have interest in or with whom you would like to cooperate. Cooperating partners can be 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 the 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”.
Further, The selected participants take part in an obligatory introductory week in Wuppertal from 19th of January to 2nd of February 2019. Following the end of the fellowship year, they introduce their results with a lecture in Wuppertal in January 2021.
The Fellowship is international. It has no age-restrictions and aims at single artists from the fields of dance and choreography (dancers and choreographers). They can apply if they meet their personal requirements.
