In 2020, TANZPAKT Dresden facilitates 12 four-week research residencies for choreographers and dance artists based in Saxony. The residencies take place at various partner institutions in Dresden and abroad and serve the intensive exchange between artists and institutions of business, science, culture and social work. By enabling concentrated research work, the residencies offer the opportunity to explore social realities and to (further) develop comprehensive artistic project ideas in their framework.
