In addition to ATLAS – create your dance trails and danceWEB, the continuing education programmes ImPacT and Team up! will again be offered. Here students can exchange ideas with experienced dance practitioners and improve their technique through individual training plans. Apply now! MORE

Video retrospective: In Memoriam Ismael Ivo

In 2021, we had to face a deeply tragic loss. The co-founder of our festival, our friend and companion Ismael Ivo, was taken away by the second COVID wave in São Paulo on 8th April 2021. We commemorated this exceptional artist and dance mediator on 1st August 2021 at Volkstheater Vienna. We would like to thank everyone involved and present at this special evening! All those who could not be there, who would like to watch it again or share it, can find the link HERE

A dance school in honour of Ismael Ivo

The government of the state of São Paulo is fulfilling a post-mortem dream for the dancer and choreographer Ismael Ivo, who died in 2021: a dance school has been founded in his honour, the São Paulo Escola de Dança Ismael Ivo – Centro de Formação em Artes Coreográficas. MORE
