Katapult is available for artistic residencies in contemporary performance art disciplines of all kinds. Our goal is to push the boundaries of any genre through interdisciplinary collaboration, so we highly encourage applicants to demonstrate how they work with others, be it performing artists, musicians, technicians, directors, outside eyes, or something else. Should you require it, we can also help you find such people.

Katapult is a fully independent organisation run by artists, for artists. Residency prices are intended to be affordable, are based directly on the running costs of the project, and are not-for-profit. Unfortunately, our financial situation doesn’t allow free residencies. 

Check the calendar to see if your required dates are available.

Please contact the office for a full explanation of our rates.

House Rules

  • No outdoor shoes on the dance floor
  • No animals in the space
  • No smoking inside
  • No fire inside
  • No aerial while alone in the space
  • The space should be left as clean or cleaner than it is found
  • If you are the only one in the space, you are responsible for locking all exits before you leave


We ask that you include the Katapult logo in any support references that you have. As we offer a non-exclusive way for artists to self-fund their own work, and we share the risks of the project alongside them, we feel that it is fair to request this, and it would be very helpful for any future funding applications we might make.


You are responsible for finding your own accommodation in Berlin during your visit. If you have no personal contacts here, we would advise posting in the Berlin Performing Artists Connected group on Facebook saying that you will be in residency at Katapult.

Training and Noise

Both studios at Katapult is used for residencies. There is sound insulation between the two spaces, but if you need quiet, do not hesitate to ask for it. In general, you are likely to have more quiet time in the morning than in the evening.

Clearance of space

We ask for the space to be cleared very punctually, in order to set up for and clean in advance of the next resident.
