Premiere League

After an unfortunately quieter year, we are thrilled that a whole range of international and Austrian guests are premiering their brand new pieces at ImPulsTanz: Meg Stuart presents her latest work CASCADE at Volkstheater, Raja Feather Kelly, director of the New Brooklyn Theatre, will develop the third part of his UGLY trilogy on site and present it to the audience for the first time. Maguy Marin and Alain Platel will show exciting new adaptations of their classics Umwelt and Gardenia. And local heros and heroines such as Ian Kaler, Willi Dorner, Saskia Hölbling and Liquid Loft will finally be able to show what they have been working on over the past year.

ImPulsTanz Campaign 2021

As part of this year’s festival campaign – Being ImPulsTanz – the design studio CIN CIN and the hyped 3D makeup artist Ines Alpha, who has designed spacey AR filters for Dior and artworks for Charli XCX, have created an Instagram face filter exclusively for ImPulsTanz. This way, all those who unfortunately cannot travel to Vienna this summer can be part of the festival – at least virtually. We look forward to a lot of instragram filter gold – have fun! MORE
