Funding is available through this programme to theatres and theatre/dance groups which operate as private entities and are based in Berlin.
Eligibility and conditionsBasic funding can be allocated to theatres and theatre/dance groups
- with a track record of producing distinctive creative work;
- whose work has resonated with audiences and critics;
- that work primarily in Berlin; and
- can be expected to stage (at minimum) one new production per year in Berlin throughout the funding period.
Basic funding is allocated for a period of two years. Applications may be submitted in relation to personnel and material costs incurred up to the day of the premiere; performance-related expenses are not eligible for funding through this programme as a rule. Applications may also be submitted in relation to the operation of a venue and other general expenses related to the development and ongoing operation of the theatre / theatre/dance group, but which are not necessarily tied to a specific production.
Call for applications
A call for applications to this programme is usually made in December for the two-year funding period beginning two years subsequently.
