The most noteworthy positions in contemporary dance, choreography and performance: The Dance Platform 2018, organised by PACT Zollverein, will take place from March 14–18, 2018 in Essen and Gelsenkirchen.

Dance Platform
Initiated in 1990, the biennal Dance Platform constitutes the most important event on the contemporary dance calendar in Germany. For the 14th edition of the Dance Platform, an expert jury has selected 13 impulse-setting works created within the last two years. Alongside PACT Zollverein, the festival organiser and hub, venues include a range of former industrial spaces across the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zollverein, as well as the Aalto-Theater, in Essen, and the Musiktheater im Revier, in Gelsenkirchen. The programmedeveloped for Dance Platform 2018 offers a resonating space for the most pressing issues of our time. The featured productions all echo urgent questions and celebrate the emancipatory power of dance and choreography and the diversity of bodies and identities. They also stand for the many other choreographic works from the past two years that have examined aesthetic, social and existential concerns in Germany and invite a shift of perspective. Alongside the performances, the essence of the Dance Platform lies in interaction and mutual exchange. In the mornings the Assembly at the SANAA building will host debates on the social dimension of choreography and dance. The Artist Summit–initiated by the artists’ group HOOD–will reflect on current developments, work on new perspectives and hold discussions with thirty invited artists. Each night after the performances, the Late Night Studio Talk, filmed live, will offer an open forum for reflection, music and shared activities.

Technology, the Body, and Choreography

Free residency at Lake Studios Berlin sponsored by TroikaTronix – Mark Coniglio


We invite dance makers invested in the field of technology to apply for this special 4 - 6 week residency hosted at Lake Studios Berlin between July 1 – August 15 2018

We are searching for artists who consciously use elements of technology to affect the choreographic process and performance. We look for work that uses technology to expand or intervene in the body’s performative and choreographic possibilities while keeping the human body in the foreground of the work. The role of the technology should be integral to the choreographic expression: it should connect, organize or disrupt the body or bodies aesthetically, socially, or politically.


To apply please submit the following (please use the provided application form provided if possible!):


-  An artist statement (no more than 200 words) about how you define, perceive and work with the element of technology in your 

   performance work.

-  A description (no more than 500 words) of what you would like research and develop during the residency

-  Supporting video and documentation material of current and/or past work

-  Your CV and the CVs of any collaborating artists


We will provide:

  • a private room and access to a shared kitchen, and bathroom in the Lake Studios Complex for one person. A second bed is available in the room.

  • 100 hours of studio space divided between our small and large studios

  • Technical equipment: 2 beamers, selected stage lights/light board, sound system and mixer, microphones, sound recorder, video camera to record rehearsals, etc.

  • A presentation of the first stage of the work for feedback in our performance series Unfinished Fridays on July 27

  • 2 hours of coaching by Mark Coniglio (creator of the media programming software Isadora)

  • 50€/ week stipend


The selected resident must provide his/her own transportation and meals.


Lake Studios would like to thank TroikaTronix, maker of Isadora, for their generous financial support of this residency.


Please submit your application with the subject line “Dance/Tech Residency 2018”

by March 15, 2018 to

We will notify all artists of the selection results by March 22, 2018.
