Applications closing soon for Tanja Liedtke Fellowship
There can be no doubt that the tragically untimely death of Tanja Liedtke in 2007 was a great loss to the dance world. Yet under the auspices of the foundation named in her honour, her amazing creative energy lives on.
The Tanja Liedtke Fellowship for 2009 is an incredible opportunity, open to Australian citizens aged from 20-35 years.
The artistic component of the Fellowship consists of a 7 week residency in Berlin, during which time the successful applicant will have access to the Tanz im August festival, workshops, touring with Sasha Waltz & Guests, tickets to performances, plus a rehearsal space for creative development.
Plus, it's all fully financially supported with return flights to Berlin, accommodation and a living allowance supplied.
This unique opportunity is aimed at developing contemporary dancers/choreographers, and the combination of a structured schedule with open space for creative development would be of great benefit to any young artist.
The closing date for applications is January 31, 2009. To download the application form, click here or visit www.tanja-liedtke-foundation.org
