Switzerland | Tanzplattform Bern 2024 for choreographers

Bühnen Bern is calling for applications from professional choreographers and dancers for their Tanzplattform Bern 2024 award, 19 to 22 June 2024 in Bern, Switzerland. The awards consist of a commission for Bern Ballet (Jury Award) and a movement research fellowship with Bern Ballet (Audience Award). 

All stylistic approaches to choreography are admitted. Criteria for selection require a clear artistic vision that encompasses professionalism, choreographic craftsmanship, a high level of dance performance and innovation. The premiere of the submitted piece should not have taken place before 2020.

The choreography to be submitted has to be between 15 and 30 minutes long, with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 performers (with no or a reduced stage design).

The chosen choreographers will be invited to perform their entire dance pieces in Bern (20 or 21 June 2024) and to perform a 5-minute excerpt of it on 22 June 2024. All participants must commit to be available for all these dates, as well as rehearsals, interviews or public relations events in Berne from 19 to 22 June 2024. 

All choreographers will obtain a performance fee. Accommodation and travel costs will also be covered.
