We are confident that this way of commemorating his life, his dance and the wonderful experiences he engaged his audiences in would have pleased Ismael Ivo the most: some of the countless artists he held in high regard and who were presented and promoted in the scope of the ImPulsTanz Festival, that was co-founded by him, coming together on stage to celebrate, in his name, the art that meant so much to him. That is exactly what is going to happen on this evening. In Vienna, where many of his fans have admired him for almost forty years as spectators, artistic partners and/or students attending his classes. With his knowledge, his talent and his charisma, Ismael Ivo helped dance develop into what it is today: an art that has become an indispensable part of contemporary culture. On the stage of Volkstheater, greats of this art including Germaine Acogny, Jose Agudo, Ivo Dimchev, Chris Haring & Liquid Loft, Raja Feather Kelly, das Klangforum Wien, Koffi Kôkô, Louise Lecavalier, Susanne Linke, Dada Masilo, Breanna O’Mara & Pina Bausch Foundation, Akemi Takeya & Didi Kern, Doris Uhlich and Wim Vandekeybus & Ultima Vez will celebrate him in style.
