The Z was founded to provide suitable rehearsal space for the various forms of contemporary performing arts, but also decidedly (hence the research in the title) to create space for rehearsals that first serve the exploration of an object, material or working relationship, independent of co-production commitments and performance dates. In other words, rehearsals that can serve, for example, as a preliminary stage for a concept or a concrete production funding application. In reality, however, space and time alone are unfortunately not enough. There is still no funding instrument for this kind of rehearsals and research, so that the artists can afford this kind of work.
Therefore ID Frankfurt tries to award research residencies twice a year.
