Postgraduate Residence Studios and Performance Research Studies is an artistic research program that aims at the support of new talents, develops participants’ personal choreographic or dance signature and incubates practice-based research in an international artistic and educational context. 

PRES offers a one-year artistic research based on the principles of self-organization, collaboration and rigorous practice as research methodologies. Participants develop an independent artistic research project. In this program, individual work and collective research are linked. The participants follow a daily training class, and have their own daily research residency. They receive a regular mentoring and dramaturgical support. Each month, participants follow an intensive week of workshops, seminars and master classes.
