A total of 100 collaborations have been supported to date.

Extended network cooperation

The German Federal Cultural Foundation has extended the Doppelpass fund through 2021 and opened it to expanded network partnerships: The existing tandems of independent group and theater house are joined by another partner house. The individual productions are exchanged between the houses. The partnership should be on an equal footing and aim to test new formats and guest-performing ways of working. These are an important aspect of counteracting the increasing pressure to produce new productions in the German theater landscape and increasing the lifespan of productions.

Residency Program

The core of the Doppelpass Fund is a two-year residency program. Here, artistic collaborations on an equal footing between one independent group and two theaters supported.

The independent group can be located in all artistic disciplines as well as across disciplines. The group must already have relevant experience as a consolidated artistic team and have its main focus of work in Germany. A theater house must be a city, state or. being a state theater based in Germany. The other partner house can be another city, state, or local theater. be a state theater or a permanent dance or theater house that offers a professional infrastructure for artistic work in these areas. This partner house can offer its Headquarters also outside Germany have. At least one new production must be created with the group at each house, which will also be shown at the other partner house in each case.

The cooperation will be realized in a period of two seasons. The residence of the free group applies to the two houses and can be implemented in blocks of work or. does not require a year-round presence at the sites. All partners are to retain the possibility of realizing their own projects for the period of the residency.
