Contracts: Normalvertrag (NV) Bühne

13.11.2023 | 7.00 - 8.30 pm

with Luca Ponti & Paul Hess

Signing a contract: Probably all of us have done it at some point! But do you know what you're signing up for? In this webinar, we will discuss NV-Bühne, what to consider, and everything you should know before signing. What about achieving a good work-life balance? How about maintaining your health? And what about your transition? Who can provide help if you encounter problems? These questions, along with many other topics, will be explored during our webinar. Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge that will help you avoid unpleasant surprises, allowing you to fully focus on your artistic work.

The event will be held in English. Questions can also be asked in German.

Conditions of Participation

Participation is possible for all dancers starting their professional career after prior registration.


Free participation is made possible by NEUSTART KULTUR, an initiative of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
