Choreographic Dialogues

Choreographic Dialogues is a two week long residency programme designed to offer performers and choreographers based in North Rhine-Westphalia the opportunity to reflect in-depth on their own practices. 

Participating artists are given the chance to collaborate during their residency with a national or international visiting dialogue partner of their choice.

The objective is not primarily to work on an existing project but rather to allow them space and time to research a specific subject or to critically engage with their own methodologies and approaches in dialogue with transdisciplinary perspectives.

A residency in the frame of Choreographic Dialogues can incorporate the following:

  • Studio space
  • Local accommodation
  • Weekly grant allowance
  • Travel costs covering one journey from within NRW to PACT Zollverein*
  • Technical equipment (subject to availability)

*Principally, the least environmentally harmful means of transport available should be chosen.

PACT is pleased to facilitate barrier-free and family-friendly residences by arrangement.

A residency project will not have a public showing.
