Silke Z. Resistdance is founding partner of studiotrade

studiotrade is a European network of choreographers, producers and dance organisations that enables an exchange of studio spaces and infrastructures for research work and the creation or introduction into new markets and contexts for artists. studiotrade was founded in 2010.

studiotrade’s philosophy is based on trust, fairness, generosity and commitment. Each partner offers work space, accommodation, transport, technical and dramaturgical support, mentoring, meetings and encounters with professionals and audiences according to their own possibilities. studiotrade is a platform that enables artists to experiment with their own ideas, productions and concepts as well as to offer them a place to learn.

The ehrenfeldstudios are a place for performative art. Here we develop innovative works at the interface of the art genres dance, performance, media art, theatre and contemporary circus. In various formats we offer our visitors the opportunity to get to know and experience the artistic projects and look forward to a lively discourse in the future.

In association as ehrenfeldstudios e.V. under joint management with the Cologne-based artists Silke Z. and Caroline Simon (Silke Z. resistdance), Barbara Fuchs (tanzfuchs PRODUKTION), Tim Behren and Florian Patschovsky (Overhead Project), and Marion Dieterle (DOSSIER 3-D-Poetry), new ideas will be implemented and experimental formats presented.
