Applications are now open for the Pina Bausch Fellowship for Dance and Choreography 2018. The Arts Foundation of NRW and the Pina Bausch Foundation have devised this grant programme to help artists to find new modes of expression, working with a cooperation partner of their choice.
Over the past two years of the programme, more than 400 people have applied, with ages ranging from 18 to 60 – there are no age restrictions. Applications can be submitted online at fellowship.pinabausch.org until September 15, 2017.
The website includes information on the grant programme and reports on the current fellowship holders. Dancer and choreographer Antonio Ssebuuma from Uganda will travel to New Zealand to change his perspectives at the Dance Department of the University of Auckland, while Egyptian Mohamed Yousry “Shika” is working on the concept of the “New African Body” with choreographer Nora Chipaumire in New York.
