STUDIO2 is a work and research space for the independent performing arts in Berlin-
Kreuzberg whose proximity to the ITI's Media Library for Dance and Theatre and the
associated Media Studio offers the residency project the opportunity to develop diverse
research approaches.

A residency includes

  • Free use of the 165sqm studio and adjoining spaces within the two-week residency
  • Workspace in the Media Library for Dance and Theatre and professional advice on research approaches
  • Monitoring of the work process on the social media channels of STUDIO2 and the ITI
  • Access to the technical equipment available at STUDIO2 including the necessary technical introduction
  • Documentation of the public work-in-progress presentation in cooperation with the Media Studio of the ITI
  • Organisational and content-related support as agreed and required

Application to the Autumn Residency

  • Presentation of the artistic research concept with a clear and feasible research question on max. 1 DIN-A 4 page (approx. 1800 characters). The research concept should focus on the artistic research process of the self-selected theme within the two-week residency and not on the artistic result (mere artistic production projects can unfortunately not be considered)

During the residency, a public event should take place that offers insights into the working

COVID-19 rules are possible).

STUDIO2, as part of the ITI, is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and welcomes
applicants with various experiences, knowledge, and artistic positions in the performing arts.

We particularly encourage artists to apply, who are newcomers in Germany, especially those
who had to leave their country of origin due to war or for political, social, or economic reasons,
as well as artists facing structural exclusion or access barriers in the performing arts sector.
