Co-Production Fund for Dance & International Guest Performance Fund for Dance (Germany)


Application 2018

Application deadline January 31,2018

-Creation of new dance productions in Germany
-International distribution of dance productions from Germany
– Mobility, exchange, cooperation on an (inter-)national level

To increase sustainable networking and the international promotion of German contemporary dance, the NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ (NPN) has two support models:

> The NPN Coproduction Fund for Dance advances the creation of new dance productions. The artists’ origins are irrelevant; however, production must take place in Germany to a substantial degree. The involvement of international partners as co-producers increases the chances for support, but is not absolutely necessary. The funds can lie between 10.000 and 50.000 EUR and no more than 50 % of the productions costs.

> The NPN International Guest Performance Fund for Dance supports international programmers, when they invite productions that were created in Germany while offering certain minimal wages that are based on standard NPN rates. The ones eligible to apply are the invited companies/ invited artists based in Germany. The categorization into three different country groups regulates the respective levels of support.
