Funding for guest performances

Since 1993, the LaFT BW (Regional Association of Dance and Theatre Professionals Baden Württemberg) has financially supported guest performances on the independent dance and theatre scene on behalf of the state and with funding made available by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts of Baden-Württemberg.

The application must reach the LaFT BW offices at least 2 weeks before the performance date together with the guest performance contract.

It is only possible to apply for funding for guest performances if the performance location is at least 10 km (as the crow flies) from the location of the host theatre (check at, indicating post code + town, without the name of the street where the theatre or venue is situated) and as long as funding is available. The venue must be in Baden-Württemberg. Only guest performances that have a fixed fee stipulated in the contract are eligible for funding.

The cap per group in 2020 is 3.000 EUR. Please note that the cap is the maximum amount that can be applied for; it is not a fixed amount that can be reserved for every group until the end of the year.

Please carefully read and comply with the guidelines for guest performance funding!

Please do not fill out the forms by hand! Applications that have been filled out by hand will not be taken into consideration.
