Which COVID-19 measures need to be considered?

There must always be a free space between the seats of different buyers – this is automatically ensured by the system. A maximum of four customers belonging to one visitor group may sit next to each other. You will probably have to wear a mask until you take your seats. The seat may not be changed. Free seats serve to maintain the physical distance. The name of the purchaser or the visitor indicated by the purchaser will be printed on most of the tickets – in case of a Corona Cluster, it must be possible for the ticket purchaser to inform the Sanitätsdirektion Wien (authorities), upon request, who attended the performance in the seats purchased. As a COVID-19 prevention, standing room is not offered until further notice. Any liability of ImPulsTanz and Culturall in connection with the rules of conduct and safety measures is excluded. Before your visit to the performance, please inform yourself about the currently valid measures on our website. Changes to the COVID-19 rules of conduct/measures do not entitle the cancellation of purchased tickets.

When do the performances of ImPulsTanz take place?

On 17th April 2020 the Austrian Federal Government announced further steps regarding its measures against COVID-19. Those measures as well as the international situation, the continuing massive travel restrictions and unpredictable visa problems, force us to take a painful but nevertheless clear step: The 37th edition of the ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival from 9th July to 9th August 2020 cannot take place in its originally planned and later adapted form. ImPulsTanz 2021 will take place from 15th July to 15th August. 

Where do the performances take place?

ImPulsTanz performances take place amongst others at Burgtheater, Akademietheater, Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz, Schauspielhaus as well as at mumok – Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien and Leopold Museum.

When will the programme be released?

Selected performances will already be published at the end of April of the respective year. The entire performance programme will be released in June. Until then, there will be regular updates and previews about the performance programme on our website.

When does the ticket sale begin?

By the end of April the pre-sale starts already for selected performances. The pre-sale for all further productions starts in the beginning of June.

Where can I buy tickets?

Tickets can be purchased online, at our box offices and by phone. Detailed information will follow with the release of the performance programme in June. 

How much do the tickets cost?

Ticket prices vary depending on the performance, venue, duration and category. All prices can be found in the detailed description of the respective performance.
