ImPulsTanz – that’s performances, workshops, research projects and ImPulsTanz Soçial, the daily music programme.
Founded in 1984, ImPulsTanz has become one of the most distinguished festivals for contemporary dance worldwide. Every summer thousands of professional dancers, choreographers, teachers and dance aficionados from all over the world come together to exchange ideas, investigate together and inspire each other and turn Vienna into the epicentre of contemporary dance and performance.
More than 100.000 people visit the festival each year, making it the biggest of its kind in Europe. There are...
- .... more than 140 performances in different venues all over Vienna, such as Burgtheater, Akademietheater, Odeon, Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz, Schauspielhaus, Leopold Museum, mumok and many more.
- ... around 240 workshops and research projects for beginners and professionals at the studios of Arsenal.
- ... nightly DJ sets and free concerts at the ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge at Burgtheater Vestibül, plus two big festival parties at Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz.
In the ImPulsTanz performance programme, contemporary dance creations by established choreographers meet trendsetting productions by a new generation of artists, who have found a firm place in the festival within the [8:tension] Young Choregraphers’ Series. In the form of exhibitions, installations, book presentations, talks, films and music video programmes, the ImPulsTanz Extras offer a deeper insight into the world of dance. The workshop programme welcomes several thousand participants from more than 90 countries: beginners of all ages as well as professionals have the chance to study with internationally renowned, ground-breaking choreographers. The nightly music programme ImPulsTanz Soçial invites artists and spectators to join them in celebrating and dancing at the ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge or at one of the two big parties at Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz.
The upcoming ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival takes place from 9th July to 9th August 2020. As of April, you will find regularly updated information on the programme.
