In 2022, STUDIO2, the work and research space of ITI Germany in the centre of Berlin, will offer for the first time a residency programme for artists from the fields of dance, performing arts and performance art (also interdisciplinary) who are at the beginning of their professional career.

Where: Studio2 (located at Kunstquartier Bethanien), Berlin, Germany.

When: 17 to 30 July 2022

Deadline for applications: 28 February 2022

STUDIO2 is a 165-square-metre rehearsal and workshop space for the performing arts at Kunstquartier Bethanien in Berlin-Kreuzberg. As a space for artistic research and practice the studio offers aspiring artists an opportunity for experimentation and research through rehearsals, workshops, and presentations of their work.

STUDIO2 will offer two residencies from 2022 for individual artists or collective groups of up to five artists from the fields of dance, performing arts and performance art (also interdisciplinary) who are at the beginning of their professional career.

The two residencies, each lasting two weeks, will take place from July 17 to 30, 2022 (Summer Residency) and from October 23 to November 05, 2022 (Fall Residency) and will enable open artistic research on a self-selected theme.

The proximity of STUDIO2 to the ITI’s associated Media Library for Dance and Theatre and the Media Studio offers projects the opportunity to conduct research at the interface of artistic movement practice and the archival preservation of these processes.

A residency includes:

– Free use of the 165sqm studio and adjoining spaces within the two-week residency
– Workspace in the Media Library for Dance and Theatre and professional advice on research approaches (approx. 12,000 videos and additional materials)
– Monitoring of the work process on the social media channels of STUDIO2 and the ITI
– Access to the technical equipment available at STUDIO2
– Documentation of the public work-in-progress presentation in cooperation with the Media Studio of the ITI (and addition of the documentation to the Media Library)
– Organisational and content-related support as agreed and required

How to apply: Application for the Summer Residency:

– Artistic research concept with a clear question (e.g. reference to the question of artistic documentation processes) on max. 1 Din-A 4 page (approx. 4000 characters)
