dance-tech Space@ Lake Studios Berlin
Available spaces for January and February 2015!!!
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 and is offered on a rolling basis. In case there is more than one application per month we will do our best to offer either an alternate month to work, or - in case there are too many applicants to fit the year - we will conduct an informal selection process based on the following criteria:
Will the artist be a good fit for the space, and will the space realistically support the type of work the artist wants to do.
How relevant is proposed project, previous work, and CV.
We try to have a wide range/diversity of artists visiting the space throughout the year.
Interested artists must be dance-tech.net members, and send a brief description of your project or how do you envision to use the space.
Write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "dance-tech Space@Lake Studios Berlin" in the subject line.
This is a self generated residency and it is is conceived as an independent (not funded) collaboration between dance-tech and Lake Studios Berlin.
It is offered as a way to facilitate alternative and affordable spaces for independent artists and creative researchers.
The selected artist will pay his/her transportation expenses and will pay from 550 to 650 Euros per month to cover costs and this fee is based on the space available.
NOTE: The residency does not provide any equipment.
There is one projector available in the big space.
