K3 develops various specific residency and production formats in cooperation with artists as well as international partner institutions. These include e.g. the two-year EU-funded project Tour d’Europe des Chorégraphes (Leonardo Partnership Programme, 2009-2011), Treffen Total (2010 and 2016), the Ping-Pong choreographers’ exchange between Grenoble and Hamburg in cooperation with Le Pacifique | CDC (2012), the exchange between Copenhagen and Hamburg in cooperation with Dansehallerne (2013 and 2014) as well as with the Seoul Dance Center (since 2016).
In summer 2022, K3 is expanding this residency programme with various cooperation partners: In August, the artists Diana Akbulut aka Daya Jones (Switzerland), Dimitrios Mytilinaios (Greece), Daniella Santibañez Monasterio (Chile), Sara Sguotti (Italy) and Yeong Ran Suh (Korea) are invited to work in the studios of K3. At the same time, Carolin Jüngst, Yolanda Morales and Luísa Saraiva will have the opportunity to use the studios of the cooperation partners between July and November.
The focus of this year's exchange format is on its hybrid character. In addition to the on-site exchange, K3 is developing an online exchange before and after the on-site exchange at the respective institutions, as well as an associated digital workshop programme, in order to make the residency as long-lasting and sustainable as possible.
The exchange will take place together with the exchange partners Seoul Dance Center | Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture (Korea), CSC Centro per la Scena Contemporanea, Bassano del Grappa / NID New Italian Dance Platform / Italian Cultural Institute Hamburg (Italy), ARTWORKS / Stavros Niarchos Foundation (Athens, Greece), L'Abri (Geneva, Switzerland) and NAVE (Santiago, Chile).
The hybrid residency programme is developed as part of "dive in. Programme for Digital Interactions" of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation) with funding by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) through the NEUSTART KULTUR programme.
