Advance booking starts for 14 programme highlights
Less than two months until the ImPulsTanz festival summer and we are very happy to already kick off the pre-sale for a selection of brand new pieces! Meg Stuart embarks on a wild odyssey through time in the world premiere of CASCADE at Volkstheater. Trajal Harrell, the in-house director of Schauspielhaus Zürich, presents his work Maggie The Cat. In his adaption of Tennessee Williams’ The Cat on a Hot Tin Roof the dancers are, amongst other things, voguing to hot music – from Bruce Springsteen to Julio Iglesias. In Outwitting the Devil, Akram Khan interprets a Babylonian epic where six dancers of all ages visualise the dark, destructive side of mankind. Louise Lecavalier, David Bowie’s former dance partner, once again explores her own limits in a controlled, meditative and obsessive way in her work Stations at Akademietheater. All this and much more here!
