An ImPulsTanz training programme

13 July – 15 August 2017 in Vienna
Application deadline: 15 May 2017

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 of the most basic needs of emerging choreographers: access to studio space for research and creation as well as continued inspiration through top-class training possibilities, a broad range of international dance productions and the exchange with fellow artists.

Before the actual start of the programme, an experienced ATLAS Buddy will advise the participants in the process of composing their individual programme, while an ATLAS Coach (2017 Philippe Riéra of the internationally successful theatre collective Superamas) will accompany the participants' works dramaturgically during their stay. Previous performance fragments may but don't need to be included in this process.
