Flutgraben Performances Residencies | Open Call #2 | 2021

We are happy to announce the second call of our artist-in-residence program Flutgraben Performances Residencies. This residency is open to Berlin-based choreographers and artists from the fields of choreography, performance art and contemporary dance. Each artist can work in the studio for the period of one month, following the research, exploration, practice or project they are aiming to deepen or develop.

Who we address

This opportunity is for both emerging and established professional choreographers and artists who are active in Berlin.

Each residency lasts four weeks.

In this call we offer 3 residencies from March to July 2021. Please indicate your preferred time period in your application.

Who we are

Flutgraben Performances is a series of events located at Flutgraben, an artist-run studio building in Berlin Treptow. The series Flutgraben Performances is dedicated to the exploration, growth and transformation of live art. Each year a group of 10–12 artists comes and works together. Individually, the artists follow their own artistic tracks without any limits in form and content. They use the time to test, develop, re-think and discuss their artistic practices and believes. On a collective level the group invents new forms of meeting the public, aiming for an encounter of artist, art work and art lover as a fertile, intimate and joyful act. With Flutgraben Performances Residencies we are extending and complementing our vision of an artist-run initiative for experiments and exchange.

Flutgraben Performances and Flutgraben Performances Residencies are independent projects initiated 2019 by artists Clément Layes, Moritz Majce, Sandra Man and Jasna L. Vinovrški.

Flutgraben Performances Residencies is funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.

Flutgraben artists house

With our project we are one species among others, adding to the diversity of the Flutgraben artists house biotope. The Flutgraben artists house is administered by Flutgraben e.V. (www.flutgraben.org)

Here are the jurors statements:

Ivan Björn Ekemarks investigation of a transitional collectivity contains non-homogenic materials, colours, costumes, and performative elements that create a choreography of attention, sometimes with traces of humour. In his work the surface of what is shown acts as an entry point into deeply intimate sediment layers underneath, speaking of isolation, rejection, obsession.

(Text and Invitation by André Uerba)

Pauline Payens artistic approach combines a calm cheekiness with a sensitivity for both concrete corporeality and the poetic quality of language. With her specific perspective as a former video artist on body-based live art she takes the irreducible relations of body and image seriously, and commits herself to art as an exploration of affects.

(Text and Invitation by Moritz Majce)
