The NPN International Guest Performance Fund for Dance

The NPN International Guest Performance Fund for Dance is directed at multipliers as well as international programmers; it supports them when they invite productions that were created in Germany while offering certain minimal wages that are based on standard German rates. International programmers are thus given a greater incentive to take on the risks of presenting artists and productions that are unknown or hardly known in these countries. Depending on the country, the type of support varies in order to balance the differences in the respective country's economic power.

The objective of this initiative for internationalization and of the support concept is to increase the international presence of German artistic contemporary dance creations. In addition, exchange and cooperation between programmers and artists is supported in the sense of a better distribution of existing or new productions.

The NPN International Guest Performance Fund for Dance is kindly supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM).
