What is Limited Edition?
Limited Edition is a residency format that was developed to promote the dance scene based in Hamburg. Hamburg choreographers who have already developed their first smaller works can gain experience in the development of a larger production at the theatre within the framework of the Limited Edition format. The K3 Studios will be used for rehearsals from April to June. At the end of June, the plays are presented on two evenings in a row. The plays should therefore not exceed a length of 45 minutes.
What is the procedure?
Interested choreographers can contact K3 with an initial idea by the end of August. Together with the selected choreographers, an application for funding for young artists will then be submitted to the Ministry of Culture and Media. The application is submitted by the choreographers themselves; the deadline for this is 15 November 2022. The results of the project funding are announced by the Department of Culture in January. The residency can only be realised if the application is successful. The final rehearsals and performances take place on the stages of Kampnagel (P1/K4).
If necessary, K3 will support you in the preparation of a cost-financing plan, write a venue certificate and advise you on the content of your application. K3 is available for dramaturgical guidance and support during the production. The production is also supported by K3 and Kampnagel's infrastructure (studio space, technology, stage, lighting, sound).
What is the budget?
The funding for newcomers from the Department of Culture is limited to 7,500 euros. Additional funds can be applied for from the Hamburg Cultural Foundation, among others. The productions should therefore be limited in scope and the team kept small. Fees for dancers, set and costume design etc. must be paid out of the budget.
Who is Limited Edition aimed at?
Limited Edition is aimed at freelance choreographers who live and/or work in Hamburg and are at the beginning of their career. They should also have already presented their first small works. K3 is open to different choreographic approaches and dance styles. Training as a choreographer is not a prerequisite. K3 welcomes applications from people with different abilities and bodies, BIPoC, people from marginalised communities and people with migration and refugee experiences, regardless of religion, race or gender.
Those who have already received funding from the Department of Culture and Media in the past are not eligible to apply for Limited Edition.
