INTPA – International Net for Dance and Performance Austria
INTPA is a project by the Tanzquartier Wien together with the Austrian Foreign Ministry (BMeiA) and the Ministry for Education, Art and Culture (BMUKK), and relates to countries in Europe with particular attention to the Danube and Black Sea area.
Who can apply for the INTPA support?
ONLY events organisers based abroad in Europe are eligible to apply.
What countries is INTPA conceived for?
The INTPA guest-performance support relates to countries within Europe with particular concern for the Danube – Black-Sea area.
How to make an application for individual guest performance support:
• The events organiser abroad submits the application form (project description and cost estimate) for the support of the planned guest performance
• The application must arrive (by e-mail) at least two months before the planned performance date
• The productions by the invited artists working in Austria must already be able to go on tour
• The cost estimate is to comply with the minimum-fee structure called for in the form.
The fees and rehearsal fees of the artists, technicians and project management involved in the production as well as and travel and living expenses of the artists or the dance company will be supported pro rata (between 25% and 50%). (i.e. there is no possibility of applying only for travel or transport costs for example).
In order to make the process for the respective events organiser easier, the on-site event costs will not be included in the application and calculation.
• If there is a positive decision in favour of the support, the events organiser will receive a contract covering all the accounting and reporting procedures.
INTPA was launched as a pilot project in 2012 and is continued this year. It is an additional support instrument for the existing support models and channels of these ministries.
INTPA concerns a guest-performance support through which the events organisers abroad can receive a percentage financial support for the presentation of artistic productions of choreographers/performers working in Austria. No artist-in-residence or exchange programmes /scholarships etc. are supported.
The INTPA is a guest-performance support through which events organisers abroad can receive proportional funding to support the presentation of of already premiered pieces from Austrian based choreographers / performers. The idea behind this internationalisation offensive and the support concept serves to raise the international presence of Austrian artistic work in dance and performance. Foreign events organisers will be provided with a support incentive to put them in the position to invite artists from Austria and to pay them adequate fees. The proportional funding of the artists costs represents a major incentive for the events organisers to assume the risk for the presentation of artists and productions which are still little known or unknown in these countries.
Any events organiser can use the application form to apply to the Tanzquartier Wien for financial support. Fees and rehearsal fees for artists, technicians and project management involved in the production as well as travel and subsistence expenses of the artists or the dance company will be proportionately supported (between 25% and 50% depending on the country). The on-site events costs are not included in the application and calculation, so that the process is easier for the respective events organisers.
In addition to the support for individual guest performances, two festivals or serial performance projects per year will be supported as priority events with Austrian artists – one in a western European country and the other in the Danube/ Black Sea area. Accompanying these priority programmes, framework programmes will be offered that highlight the artistic scene in Austria or there are (educational) workshops with the respective companies or artists on site. The programming and design of the framework programme will be assumed by local events organisers in discussion with the Tanzquartier Wien.
An independent jury decides on the uses for the funds. The jury members are: Arno Böhler (philosopher), Kira Kirsch (head of dramaturgy of the festival steirischer herbst Graz), Richard Schweitzer (cultural manager).
