Residenz Tanz Leck was a project from 2014 – 2016. We are currently not offering residencies.


The Residency Tanz Leuk offers a space for research and production to young contemporary dancers and performance artists.

Our aim is to support young contemporary dancers and performance artists at the beginning of their artistic career.

We provide them with studio space (two studios at Tanzzentrum SOSTA Leuk (VS), 123m2 and 76m2) and accommodation for 2 – 4 weeks. The length of the residency may be extended on request. Residency Tanz Leuk invites between 4 and 5 groups of artists per semester.

Application conditions

The residency is directed at young contemporary dancers and performance artists with less than four years of professional experience. The invited artists will either give a workshop to the local population or show stages of their working process to a public.
