The Tanzplattform Rhein-Main offers residencies that span more than one city as a very special form of production support. The Hessisches Staatsballett and Künstlerhaus Mousonturm together select one artist from the region to develop a new production in Darmstadt, Frankfurt and Wiesbaden. In addition to receiving structural and staff support, the multi-city residency also provides significant financial resources for the new production.
After the production phase, the new piece is presented both at Mousonturm, as well as at one of the venues of the Hessische Staatsballett. “Going glocal” – local roots and international networks – is an important key aspect of the multi-city residency: Tanzplattform Rhein-Main partners also support the selected artists in finding international co-production partners and developing a touring network for the project.
The first artist-in-resident was Frankfurt choreographer Paula Rosolen, who produced her new piece “Puppets” during a multi-city residency.
