Finding a language for life – the Arts Foundation of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Pina Bausch Foundation follow up on Pina Bausch’s credo with a co-developed grant programme and award the Pina Bausch Fellowship for Dance and Choreography for the first time in 2016.
The sponsorship is meant for:
– 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 ;
– The studies of dance techniques with renowned personalities at home or abroad.
The scholarship holders get to discover new forms of expression and to extend their repertoire of movements in order to spur their artistic development. Each fellowship can take a minimum of three months and no longer than six months. It includes a monthly allowance of 2.500 Euros and one-time travel expenses. Up to four fellowships are granted each year. The Fellowship is promoted internationally and aims at single artists from the fields of dance and choreography (dancers and choreographers). They can apply if they meet the personal requirements.
