ImPulsTanz Research offers a series of investigative projects for professional dancers for a restricted number of participating artists chosen by the project head. The working process emphasises challenging interaction between project head and students, thus creating one level for both students and teacher. Distinguished mainly by duration, we offer three different research formats:
- Field Projects: 5 days of 6 hours each, mostly process oriented
- Pro Series: 8-12 days of 6-7 hours each, mostly process oriented, sometimes presentation oriented
- Choreographers' Venture: 10-28 days of 7-8 hours each
