More about the AAR concept >>>


For the AAR Residency Program, artists are invited by Bert Gstettner to work on a choreographic-performative work in the T*H Studios. The artists are accepted with confidence as equal partners who approach their project independently and autonomously. They should be able to devote themselves entirely to their ideas, visions and research. Their artistic results will be prepared and presented publicly in the context of the Werkschau, also at the T*H Studio.

The residencies will be accompanied in artistic and production terms by the personal advice of Bert Gstettner. With more than 30 years of experience as a choreographer, company and label director, he is able to understand the concerns of the younger artists and may help them in their creations. The artists can find time for experimentation and development of choreographic processes for several weeks.

Beyond the studio space, stage equipment, costume consulting, PR text consulting is offered. An individually agreed production grant or artistic fee can be offered depending on the funding situation and project scope.

Co-Curation | Co-Mentoring

Bert Gstettner is going to add a "Board of Curators and Mentors" to the AAR-team. Fellow artists (also former AAR artists) are invited to take part in the decision-making process in order to act as coaching/mentoring partner. This will open up new collaborations and perspectives in the choice of applicants and artistic support. 2022 artists Andrea Nagl and Imani Rameses will take over this part. 2023 tba.
