The Frankfurt LAB is a rehearsal and performance space for experimental work in the performing arts and music with two performance halls. Its’ partners Ensemble Modern, the Forsythe Company, today Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company, Hessische Theaterakademie, Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst and Künstlerhaus Mousonturm share the artistic responsibility.

Since 2014 the Frankfurt LAB is hosting an annual residency program. The residency is meant for artists from every discipline and is looking for national and international participants. It offers a month’s worth of time for research, prepare and progress of artistic work in one of the given rehearsal spaces. A residency means not only having a rehearsal space, but also technical equipment (as much as is available), basic technical assistance, as well as financial help for the needed material and a 1000 Euro grant for each of a maximum of 2 people to a group, eventually also travel and accommodation costs. There is also the possibility to apply with larger groups - in this case the fee has to be shared between the participants. The Frankfurt LAB will also offer the possibility to present the results within the format Miniaturen (Miniatures).

The selected groups will be provided with a rehearsal space from September 1st to September 30st, for two weeks of the rehearsal time, the big hall of Frankfurt LAB can be offered, which can be divided in two studios, leaving about 250 square meters per studio.
