TUE GREENFORT & FRANK WILLENS
In 2016, the ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival extends the dialogue between visual arts and contemporary dance. On top of presenting internationally outstanding choreographers with their works at Leopold Museum and mumok – Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien, the festival launches a unique workshop & research series – visual arts X dance – in close collaboration with the German-British artist Tino Sehgal.
Spanning over the entire festival period (14 July – 14 August 2016), at visual arts X dance, each an artist from the field of visual arts and contemporary dance line up together – visual artist encounters dance artist. More than 30 „couples“ – mostly "blind dates" – make for an intense exchange beyond established genre borders opening their doors to art students and artists, performers and choreographers, curators and everyone working on the edges of visual arts and dance.
„In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in the live event in the field of visual art, and at the same time the dance field increasingly situates what it does in within theoretical discourses coming out of visual art history.
On a level of study however there is very little possibility for students of visual art to learn about composing in time and directing, and dancers and choreographers usually have little access to the operational procedures and embodied thought-styles of the art world other than reading art history and visiting exhibitions. Our workshop programme pairs artists from both fields to allow for an exchange of craft and techniques for dance as well as visual art practitioners to participate in.“ (Tino Sehgal)
Introductory event on 17 July at 18:30 at the Leopled Musem. more
