ATLAS – create your dance trails
Choreographic Training Programme
14 July–18 August 2021
ATLAS – create your dance trails is a module-based training programme embedded in the ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival. It offers artists with first choreographic experiences a dynamic environment to intensively work on their artistic development. The programme is designed to address two of the most central needs of emerging choreographers: On the one hand, to have access to studio space for research and piece development and on the other hand, to gain new input through individual training programmes, by visiting a broad range of international dance productions and through exchanging with artists from more than 100 countries as well as through peer-to-peer exchange within the ATLAS group. In addition, weekly showings enable the participants to present their works or work steps.
An ATLAS coach will accompany the participants’ works dramaturgically during the programme. In 2020 and 2021, the dance dramaturge Guy Cools will once again be the ATLAS coach. Existing performance fragments can, but do not need to, be brought to Vienna. In addition, an ATLAS assistant will support the participants with the preparation and organisation of their stay.
