K3 ResidencyIn 2007, K3 began its main residency programme, which each year provides three choreographers with a chance to work on site for eight months. The residency begins around the beginning or middle of August and runs until end of March / beginning of April of the following year. This internationally unique programme is intended for artists currently at the beginning of their professional careers, who have already produced some choreographic work of their own.
The residency programme is one-of-a-kind because of its length of eight months and is closely linked to the other courses and professional training programs offered by K3. The residency includes mentoring and dramaturgical, technical, and production related support. It moreover links the projects proposed by the choreographers in residence closely to the various other on going programs of K3.
The goal of the residency is to develop and strengthen the connections between choreographic practice, research, artistic production, and qualification. Over the course of the residency the three choreographers will each develop a full-length piece that is presented towards the end of the residency, in the frame of TanzHochDreion three evenings. Choreographers-in-residence receive a monthly grant, a production budget, mentoring, dramaturgical support, and opportunities to acquire additional skills and qualifications.
