Uferstudios_ for contemporary dance
Uferstudios for contemporary dance is an historically protected area with 16 spacious studios, several offices and workshops. Between the two entrances at Badstrasse 41a and the smokestack at Uferstrasse 23, a large courtyard invites you to wander about, linger or attend an artistic event and provides access for persons with physical disabilities to almost all spaces.
Since undergoing a renovation that was supported by the Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie Berlin and the eventual opening in Berlin in 2010, Uferstudios has offered choreographers, dancers and other artists the space for professional work in an inspiring environment that is welcoming and fosters openness and participation.
The idea behind the Uferstudios model is the synergetic combination of artistic production, education and information - the different uses are combined to form an exciting prism. A wide range of artists hone their crafts here, including those who temporarily rent studios for rehearsals or events, students and lecturers from the Hochschulübergreifenden Zentrum Tanz Berlin, artists and employees of the Tanzfabrik Berlin, the ada studio and Tanzbüro Berlin. This is a venue where one can practice, research, work and study, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Open formats strengthen the connection to the neighborhood and the respective partners offer regular events.
The Uferstudios program as a location is formed by the profile and the respective focus of their partners based here. In regular meetings, all partners work together to open up the city and the local and international networking of the artists working on site. Uferstudios provides open spaces for the artists, students and academics that produce work here and provides them with an environment to grow with their ideas and activities.
