dance-tech Space@ Lake Studios Berlin

Since January 2014, dance-tech Space@ Lake Studios Berlin is offering to international interdisciplinary movement and media artists the possibility to live and make art  for a month in a peaceful artist run working, living and performance space in Berlin, Germany.

The artists will enjoy the recently opened Lake Studios Berlin, a unique living and creative working space with fast connection into the exciting creative center of Berlin and with the advantage of the quiet beauty of Mueggelsee lake and a forest at only 5 minute walk for depth concentration on research, creative process and swim in summer months.

Lake Studios Berlin is primarily a working space for 8 diverse movement artists with the need to go deeper into their work and practice. It is an experience of collaborative living and creation, and the resident will have the opportunity of artistic exchange as well as access to inside information about the dance scene in Berlin.

The artist will enjoy a private apartment and access to a dance space with sprung wooden floors.

The spaced is allotted per month.

The space is offered selected first-come, first-served (FCFS) and a lottery when more than one. 

Interested artists must be members, and send a brief description of your project or how do you envision to use the space. 

Write an email to with dance-tech Space@Lake Studios Berlin in the subject line.

Months available will be announced on this page and via email to the network members.


This is a self generated residency and it is is conceived as an independent (not funded) collaboration between dance-tech and Lake Studios Berlin as a way to facilitate alternative and affordable spaces for independent artists and creative researchers.
