Tip: The Gym – Pleasure Activism for the mind-muscle connection!

The Gym is a hybrid place that combines exhibition, trainings and performances and can be perceived as a counterproject to stereotypical body cultures, market-conforming standardization and other forms of neoliberal self-optimization. A diverse training program with Weekly Classes, extensive Sunday Sessions and Mental Workouts form the vibrant core of the project. Together with around 40 participating artists, trainers and performers - among them are names well known to the ImPulsTanz audience such as Karin Cheng, Romy Kolb, Ina Holub, God's Entertainment, Geumhyung Jeong or Eisa Jocson - The Gym expands the range of motion of inclusive body politics and non-toxic fitness, strengthens the mind-muscle connection and offers resistance training for body, mind and soul. Pleasure included! From 2 November until 4 December at Soho Studios Vienna.

Call for Action – United in support for Ukraine

We, as members of the Life Long Burning network - working all over Europe, with a longtime connection and Eastern European partner members, collaborating and facilitating artists’ and cultural workers’ mobility for more than 20 years - are highly concerned about the current situation in Ukraine and neighboring regions and the impact on the population in the period to come.

We urge national and European governments, as well as the local administrations, to set up immediate emergency funds and support measures available so that cultural and other civil society organizations can continue to actively support Ukrainian and Russians colleagues in threat. The next weeks and months will be worse than the first days of war as the number of refugees will increase. The civic reactions and solidarity of our citizens require a strong response of involvement from our governments and from the EU.

Questioning terms and titles

The intense questioning of the term “urban” has reached ImPulsTanz last summer and has now lead to our decision to remove it from the department titles in the hope to open this discussion in our community too. When we started to use the term in 2015, we have simply adapted what we thought was a suitable umbrella term to subsume art forms that play an important role in our workshop programme.
