research or die.


the following research workshops and performance projects are held by incredibly dedicated teachers and choreographers who come to b12 to share their knowledge and passion with you. every year we learn from your feedback and are very encouraged by the ongoing support and enthusiasm that we receive!


in order to suit different financial needs and research ideas, we have created different workshop options of different lengths: two, four, six, eight, and ten days as well as other, special research workshops with a different length. and of course not to forget our beloved performance projects! you can mix and match and apply for the ones which work best for you. please check our website regularly, as we will be adding more workshops and workshop formats, like online workshops, over time - and be aware of our early bird and price reduction options. there is also a scholarship program available; you can find more details about this in our faq section!


this educational platform gives you the opportunity to have an in-depth experience with one choreographer, working on an idea and presenting it in a performance setting. performance projects are limited to around 12 performers and span over 12 days (sunday off). the pieces will be presented three times at dock 11, a black box theater in the centre of berlin. the application deadline is april 29th 2022.
