News from the workshop department!

Before ImPulsTanz and and the many great workshops start in about two weeks, we want to use the time to draw your attention to the great deal that comes with the workshops iChoreography by Magdalena Chowaniec & Valerie Oberleithner and Up Close and Personal - to Intergenerational Encounter by Nicole Berndt-Caccivio: If you bring a family member or a friend form another generation, you only pay one workshop fee! In iChoreography the question will be pursued of how we can help our own body - in a time determined by smartphones - to regain autonomy, trust and active participation in the world. Nicole Berndt-Caccivio uses improvisational images to explore crazy conditions, common fears, boundaries and desires as well as playful elements that can be artistically inspiring for all ages. Click here for more information.

Dimitri Chamblas, collaborator of Jean-Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs, Nike, Chanel or William Forsythe and director at CalArts – one of the most important Art Schools in the world, performs this year with Boris Charmatz À-bras-le-corps and teaches Dance and visual cultures.
