Congratulations to Australian dance artist Scott Elstermann who is not only the first Australian to receive a Pina Bausch Fellowship, but also the youngest ever recipient!
The fellowship will see Elstermann mentored by Spanish director and choreographer Marina Mascarell.
“I will get the rare opportunity to experience all the phases of Marina Mascarell's artistic process from a two-week creative development, a premiere of a new work, a remount of a previous work, touring and workshops,” explains an excited Elstermann. “The fellowship will take me to companies such as Skånes Dansteater (Malmo, Sweden), Nederlands Dans Theater (The Hague, Netherlands) and Gärtnerplatztheater (Munich, Germany) as well as artistic organisations such as Mercat de les Flors (Barcelona, Spain). I will get to participate in daily class, explore task work, observe rehearsals and attend world class performances.”
The Pina Bausch Fellowship offers young dance artists opportunities such as residencies at renowned dance institutions, short-term placements with companies or choreographers and opportunities to study with renowned artists.
