In 2010 the four partners SE.S.TA (Prague), AST (Bratislava), Le Colombier (Bagnolet) and steptext dance project (Bremen) initiated the cooperative project KoresponDance Europe. The programme gives impulses for exchange, reflexions and a debate about aesthetics. Young choreographers and dancers with less than ten years experiences are given the opportunity to enhance their choreographic language within different formats of qualification and presentation, supported by a mentor.

From January 6 to 15, 2011 KoresponDance Europe offers a residency at the Schwankhalle Bremen. A choreographer and his team can work on a project for ten days, supported by the Austrian choreographer Helge Letonja. At the end the participants are invited to present their work to the public.
