Companies/artists that reside or are located in Germany and whose dance production is invited to perform in a foreign country are eligible to apply.
The production that will be invited by the foreign programmer was mostly realized in Germany.
The guest performance must not have begun or been already completed before the jury makes its decision. The jury meets approximately 4 weeks after the application deadline (no legal entitlement).
The programmer provides a professional organizational and technical realization.
The fee that the international programmer pays to the company/artist does not lie below the minimum wages of the NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ.
Analogous to the fees covered by the programmer, the company’s/artist’s artistic production fees are subsidized at 50%, if this sum doesn’t lie below the minimum wage of the NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ. Other guest performance production costs the NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ covers are dependent on the country the programmer belongs to:
Group A support level: Subsidy to the artistic production costs of the guest performance analogous to the part that the inviting programmer pays as guest performance fee
Group B support level: Subsidy to the artistic production costs of the guest performance analogous to the part that the inviting programmer pays as guest performance fee, 100% of the per diems and lodging costs
Group C support level: Subsidy to the artistic production costs of the guest performance analogous to the part that the inviting programmer pays as guest performance fee, 100% of the per diems and lodging costs, 50% of the travel and transport costs

> January 31, 2018 (1st round)
Due to very limited funds available for the allocation of financial support an application for the 2nd round is subject to the provision that the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) approves additional support funds.
The credit statement, with the logo, in publications (press reports, programs, evening programs, posters, flyers, websites, newsletters, etc.) for all performances in Germany and abroad for projects supported by the NPN International Guest Performance Fund for Dance must be placed at a visible location and sized so as to be easily legible. The correct listing in all publications (print and online) is an indispensable requirement for support and a part of the support contract. Abbreviations of this statement are not permitted. The logo and the credit statement must both always be listed.
Criteria for allocation
A five-member expert jury from the field of dance makes the subsidy decisions. The expected quality of the production and a national and international relevance of the company's/artist's work are important criteria for the jury's decisions.
