ImPulsTanz Research offers a series of investigative projects for professional dancers for a restricted number of participating artists chosen by the project head. The working process emphasises challenging interaction between project head and students, thus creating one level for both students and teacher. Distinguished mainly by duration, we offer three different research formats:

  • Field Projects: 5 days of 6 hours each, mostly process oriented
  • Pro Series: 8-12 days of 6-7 hours each, mostly process oriented, sometimes presentation oriented 
  • Choreographers' Venture: 10-28 days of 7-8 hours each

So far, artists like Merce Cunningham (New York), Emio Greco | PC (Amsterdam), Wendy Houstoun (London), Akram Khan (London), Vera Mantero (Lissabon), Mathilde Monnier (Montpellier), Lloyd Newson (London), Steve Paxton (Vermont), Mark Tompkins (Paris), Thomas Hauert (Brussels), Meg Stuart (Berlin) and Wim Vandekeybus (Brussels) brought in their creativity and contributed to the all-communication focus of ImPulsTanz Research.

In 2016, the ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival extended the dialogue between visual arts and contemporary dance and launched a unique workshop & research series – visual arts X dance – in close collaboration with the German-British artist Tino Sehgal. visual arts X dance has since featured Isabel Lewis, Christopher Kulendran Thomas, Klaus Biesenbach, Koo Jeong A, Tacita Dean, Phil Collins, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Goshka Macuga, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Maria Hassabi and many more.

The detailed Research programme 2019 and all application information will be available online as of mid April 2019, which marks the start of the application for Research Projects.
