It was established in 2006/2007 as part of a five-year funding programme by Tanzplan Deutschland – an initiative of the German Federal Cultural Foundation. With its three dance studios and an adjacent studio stage K3 offers various forms of residencies and artistic formats of working that combine artistic research, production, and presentation.
