After having Salah Zater as our first artist in residence in 2022, we celebrate the second round of our residency programme 'To Give–to Take–to Need' this year: The residency programme invites choreographers to spend 2 weeks at our studio 'Alte Post' (Hamburg–Altona), opening their artistic practices to audiences and hosting an encounter with spectators in form of an OPEN STUDIO.
We're very happy to introduce the artists in residence 2023:
Residence 1, 14.–25.08.: Israel Akpan Sunday works as a choreographer, dancer & musician between Hamburg & Lagos. He will invite you to explore the technical, physical & societal act of falling (as a potential concept of migration) and the fear of the unknown.
Residence 2, 11.–22.09: Analy Nágila Freitas Reis is a Brazilian actress, performer, choreographer & director. Based on the principle of 'anthropophagy' – devouring what oppresses you –, she'll explore how Brazilian funk can liberate our bodies from patriarchy.
Residence 3, 27.11.–8.12.: Nadja Häussler & Sarah Lasaki will dive deeper into the development of their piece 'RePulse', which comprises dance styles that are deeply rooted in street culture. With their transdiciplinary approach they'll veer away from dance perfectionism & work on finding new & rooted connections with sound & movement as a natural way of communication.
The jury, consisting of Verena Reygers from Kulturhaus Eidelstedt, Tejan Lamboi from W3_Werkstatt für internationale Kultur und Politik e.V. and Jenny Beyer, received many great applications from diverse working artists & collectives and likes to thank all artists that applied. To contribute to the great need of more places and resources for artistic research in Hamburg, the residency programme goes into the third round next year.
The residency project is part of the three-year-project TO GIVE-TO TAKE-TO NEED, funded by DIEHL+RITTER/TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund with the support of the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media as part of the initiative NEUSTART KULTUR.Hilfsprogramm Tanz and the Hamburg Ministry of Culture and Media.
