Training programme for emerging dance artists

13 July–13 August 2018

ATLAS – create your dance trails is a module-based training programme embedded in the ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival. It offers a dynamic environment that allows young dance artists with first choreographic experience to intensively work on their professional development. The programme is designed to address two of the most basic needs of emerging choreographers: access to studio space for research and creation as well as continued inspiration through top-class training possibilities, a broad range of international dance productions and the exchange with fellow artists from more than 100 countries. On top, weekly showings give a chance to present works or work steps to an international audience.

An experienced ATLAS Buddy will advise the participants in the process of composing their individual programme, while an ATLAS Coach (Philippe Riéra / SUPERAMAS) will accompany the participants' works dramaturgically during their stay. Previous performance fragments may but don't need to be included in this process.
