The Berliner Künstlerprogramm can award short-term grants in this field, primarily to facilitate work in cooperation with other national and international cultural institutions. Since 2004 the Künstlerprogramm has been a partner in the European theatre network "Theorem". In this way, working processes and concrete projects are promoted in Berlin, while the Berliner Künstlerprogramm gains visibility in Berlin's cultural scene.
The invitations to Berlin are not decided by jury, as in other fields, but are extended by the Programme directors. Between 2003 and 2006, collaborations were realised with institutions such as the Akademie der Künste, Tanzwerkstatt Berlin, Hebbel-Theater and the Berliner Festspiele, as well as with renowned choreographers, performance artists and dance companies including "Combined Operation" (Zagreb), the Gelabert-Azzopardi Companyia de Dansa and Michael Laub's
"Remote Control Productions".
