The initiative "PAiR-Performing Arts in Residence" was launched by Schloss Broellin together with international partners in September 2010. The aim of the initiative is to discover the changing conditions of production in the performing arts. Faced with growing mobility, international composed ensembles and new forms of artistic expression, the need seems to grow in new conditions of production. For these reasons, the initiators see the need to increase the supply of residences, to promote communication and cooperation between residence houses, and to develop proposals for new funding structures. The enormous number of artists' houses in Germany and worldwide meets the demand of the visual arts, music and literature very well, but not the performing arts, which are significantly underrepresented. Schloss Broellin looks back on nearly 20 years of experience in establishing and implementing a residence program for the Performing Arts. The reality is, these specific requirements have risen sharply in recent years. To analyze the reasons and, at the same time, to grasp the real situation of artists' houses and the needs of artists, an empirical study was conducted by the working group PAiR, whose preliminary results were presented in December 2011. The survey ran from August 2011 through questionnaires, targeted at artists and artists' centers worldwide, and still continues.
