The Great Christmas Breakdown Special

ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival + Porgy & Bess

The Great Christmas Breakdown Special
19 December 2016

Hosts: Barbara Kraus aka Johnny & Akemi Takeya

How this gloomy winter night gets hit by enlightenment! Giving you this burning feeling that ususally only comes with lumbago or the greedy gazing at the "Shit, does this hurt!"-blaze of sparklers. Salvation of these and other pre-Christmas endangerings promises an evening held by Porgy & Bess and ImPulsTanz featuring the amazing artists of Vienna's dance and performance scene as well as the local music scene's heavyweights.
Together with friends, colleagues and all lovers of the extraordinary this Great Christmas Breakdown Special celebrates a night full of sparkling show acts until the break of dawn: songs, concerts, stand-up comedy, speech acts, performances, love letters and surprise acts nestle softly together, accompanied by tender sounds by much adored Djs and DJanes. The devil takes the hindmost!
