From Art to Text

Workshop with Pirkko Husemann

The next application deadline of the Hauptstadtkulturfonds is around the corner and a bunch of questions are popping up: I can make performances but I can’t write – what am I supposed to do? How am I supposed to describe something that doesn‘t exist yet? What do co-production partners and jury members want to know? Which aesthetic requires which style of communication? And why have my previous applications been successful (or not)?

The goal of the workshop is to write a text that gives the application a chance at being successful. We will sketch out the individual steps when submitting applications for funding and work with specific ideas, existing texts or productions of the participants that have already been realized. You were welcome to bring your laptops and your drafts of texts!

The workshop is intended for professional dance and theater makers who have already collected experience (positive or negative) with funding applications and are currently planning a specific project. Questions regarding generating budgets and regarding guest performances/co-productions as well as the legal formalities of producing will not be dealt with in this workshop.
