Tanzplattform Bern 2023 is an international dance festival and competition for choreographers, with two awards: a jury award for a commission for Bern Ballett; and an audience award for a movement research fellowship.
All stylistic approaches to choreography are admitted. Criteria for selection require a clear artistic vision that encompasses professionalism, choreographic craftsmanship, a high level of dance performance and innovation. The premiere of the submitted piece should not have taken place before 2020.
The choreography to be submitted has to be between 15 and 30 minutes long, with a min. of 2 and a max. of 6 performers and no or a reduced stage design.
The chosen choreographers will be invited to perform their entire dance pieces in Bern during one evening (20 or 21 June 2024) and to perform a 5 min. excerpt of it on 22 June 2024.
All choreographers will obtain a performance fee. Accommodation and travel costs will be covered in
