Time to say goodbye – and thank you!

In the past five weeks ImPulsTanz presented 155 performances, including 9 additional performances, attracted over 33,000 visitors to the theatres and museums and achieved an occupancy rate of 88%. The 185 workshops and research projects, 13 of which were added to the programme due to high demand, were also successful. This amounts to 31,850 attended single lessons. 13,000 people participated in the 196 dance classes at Public Moves powered by AK Vienna in public spaces, 7,000 enjoyed the programme apart from the dance floors. In the new ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge at Kursalon Wien at Stadtpark, approx. 16,000 people danced on the 32 evenings. In total, more than 112,000 people took advantage of the various offers of the festival. What a great résumé in such a difficult year. We say thank you and look forward to the next festival edition: from 7th July to 14th August 2022.

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
