Among them are 15 world premieres, 23 Austrian premieres, 3 classics and 10 pieces of the [8:tension] Young Choreographers’ Series. The festival also offers book presentations, film and music video programmes, installations, an exhibition and the ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge – back in the Burgtheater Vestibule.

126 international teachers and choreographers share their knowledge with beginners and professionals in about 230 workshops and research projects at Arsenal Vienna.

Feel the rhythm! 

Whether body percussion, drumming or rhythmic gestures from African dance – in these workshops the motto is: Feel the rhythm! In African Percussions, Ibou Bá introduces traditional polyrhythms of Senegal and playing techniques of musical improvisation. In PLENVM Ninja’s & DaDa Milan’s (DaDa Jv) Break the Box, body and voice are used to create music. And in The Body's Musicality, the legendary Elsa Wolliaston shows movements inspired by rites, traditional dances, expressions and gestures – from traditional African to contemporary.
