PACT ZOLLVEREIN
Essen, Germany

Since it was founded in 2002, PACT Zollverein has clearly positioned itself as an initiator, catalyst, and venue for seminal developments in the fields of dance, performance, theater, media, and fine arts.In its residency program, open to artists from around the world, PACT operates as an artists’ center offering space for concentrated working processes. Under the rubric platform, it initiates exchanges between artists, academics and students from diverse disciplines and promotes critical dialogue and reflection on artistic methodologies and findings. Its third main focus is on presenting an innovative and high-caliber stage program featuring premieres, co-productions, and guest performances.Rather than seeking immediate results, PACT’s work is primarily laid out to make lasting provisions for a plurality of different possible models; all three of its areas of activity are closely linked and mutually enriching. Under the roof of the former pithead bath at the Zollverein colliery, PACT has created a space for lively encounters and exchange, supporting long-term cooperative practices and partnerships.
