NETZ

The NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ is a support program for the exchange and distribution of contemporary dance and theatre productions from Germany on a national and international level. With the Guest Performance Fund for Dance and the Guest Performance Fund for Theatre it supports independent theatres, private theatres, city and state theatres, festivals and other cultural institutions and companies who work as presenters and would like to invite dance or theatre productions from a different German federal state. The objective of the Coproduction Fund for Dance and the International Guest Performance Fund for Dance is to assist artists, programmers and producers' mobility, exchange and cooperation on an international basis and to increase the presence of German artistic contemporary dance creations abroad.

The NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ is kindly supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, by 14 Departments of Culture and Arts of the German federal state: Baden-Württemberg, Bayern, Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen (only theatre), Hamburg, Hessen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Sachsen, Sachsen-Anhalt and Thüringen.

The NPN Coproduction Fund for Dance assists artists, programmers and producers' mobility, exchange and cooperation on a national and international basis. It advances the creation of new dance productions that extend beyond solos or small formats. The artists' origins are irrelevant; however, production must take place in Germany to a substantial degree.

In 1999, NPN Guest Performance Fund for Dance was introduced by 6 German dance presenters: Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin), JOINT ADVENTURES (Munich), Kampnagel Internationale Kulturfabrik (Hamburg), Künstlerhaus Mousonturm (Frankfurt am Main), Theater im Pfalzbau (Ludwigshafen) and tanzhaus nrw (Düsseldorf), together with the former Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, and the 5 Departments of Culture and Arts of the German federal states Bayern, Berlin, Bremen, Nordrhein-Westfalen and Thüringen. Since then, the objective of this support initiative has been to present dance productions and make them accessible to a wide audience in Germany. In 2009, NPN Guest Performance Fund for Theater was established according to the Guest Performance Fund for Dance model.

In the context of Tanzplan Deutschland, an initiative of the German Federal Cultural Foundation established for five years, the NPN Guest Performance Fund for Dance was expanded to include a Coproduction Support program from 2005-2010. Since 2013, the German Bundestag's Budget Committee provides funds that ensure continuity in artistic work and a greater international presence for German dance. It was thus possible to continue the NPN Coproduction Fund for Dance, and to initiate the NPN International Guest Performance Fund for Dance as a new support model.
