Doppelpass – Theatre Cooperation Fund, Cooperation between German independent groups and standing performing arts theatres
The German Federal Cultural Foundation established the Doppelpass Fund to support cooperation between independent groups in all artistic areas and established dance companies and theatres for a period of two years. The goal of the funding programme is to encourage the independent scene and theatres in Germany to try out new forms of collaboration and artistic production suited for tour performances, and finance their implementation. The programme wishes to provide artists on both sides the necessary freedom to productively merge their structures and working methods. Deadline: 15 November 2018.
