Impulse Funding for contemporary Dance & Theater

Within the framework of the two national guest performance promotions of the NPN, a new impulse promotion model developed together with the ministries is being launched, which award a grand to projects from the fields of contemporary dance or contemporary theater that promote exchange between regions in Germany where appropriate structures for the qualitative preservation and development of local scenes are lacking in both fields; or projects that involve artists/organizers/networks, etc. from regions where these art forms are too little represented.

The impulse funding for dance & theater is intended to create new, cross-state collaborations that tap development potential in the above-mentioned areas and regions and enable new "tangents" of cooperation.

Application deadline: 17th May (the application form will be available online by the end of April)
