In the frame of the EU project Life Long Burning Moving in November Helsinki and Uferstudios GmbH Berlin are offering two different shaped residencies for professional movement and dance artists based in Finland and Berlin.
With the Artistic Exchange Residency 2023 Moving in November and Uferstudios offer the possibility to work and research embedded in two artist driven structures, working and thinking in close connection with the local artistic scenes of the two cities (Helsinki and Berlin). We would like to offer the possibility to research, to exchange with us and to experience the program of Moving in November festival and Uferstudios.

Moving in November is a contemporary dance festival organised yearly in the Helsinki area. The festival is an invitation to come together. To experience artistic works from the local scene and abroad. Artists voicing their critical thinking, their visions, their experiences, their dreams, opening small windows to the world we are living in. www.movinginnovember.fi

Uferstudios are characterized by the coexistence of artistic production, research, education and information, and promote a synergetic collectivity on site with focus on openness and participation.
