ATLAS – Creating Dance Trails 2016

An ImPulsTanz training programme

ATLAS – Creating Dance Trails is a module based training programme embedded in the ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival. It offers a dynamic environment that allows young dance artists with first choreographic experience to intensively work on their professional development. The programme is designed to address two basic needs of emerging choreographers: On the one hand, having studio space available for research and the creation of new work, and on the other hand, get new input through top-class training possibilities, a broad range of international dance productions and the exchange with fellow artists.

Prior to the project start, an experienced ATLAS Buddy assists and advises the participants in the process of composing their individual programme, an ATLAS Coach accompanies the participants' works dramaturgically during their stay. Already existing fragments of a performance can be, but don't have to be, brought to Vienna.
