Update: Cancellation of the ImPulsTanz Festival 2020 & postponement of certain projects

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.

Especially the ImPulsTanz festival – as well as our whole artform – thrives on live atmosphere, diversity and international, transcultural exchange. Therefore, we are doing our utmost in order to revive this atmosphere, if at all possible, with Public Moves in summer and together with our museum partners in autumn. The 2020 programme will be largely maintained for ImPulsTanz 2021 (15th July to 15th August). Nevertheless, it is important to be open for new artistic works, that are still being created in response to this crisis, for the upcoming programme. We keep you posted and look forward to dancing together again! Your ImPulsTanz Team.


ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge

When the ImPulsTanz day ends, the festival lounge opens its doors. Artists, audience, dance aficionados and music enthusiasts come together to talk, dance and have fun. The ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge offers a programme with live gigs and DJ sets, every night for the whole festival period and free admission.

In addition, ImPulsTanz Soçial hosts two festival parties, where international DJs and bands as well as local heroes invite for a dance.

ImPulsTanz Parties

Meanwhile they have easily gained cult status, when it comes to summer in Vienna: ImPulsTanz’s annual parties located in the stylish Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz. At those two occasions the former officers’ mess transforms into an ecstatic hotspot of sheer lust for life! Artists, festival staff and dance enthusiastic party people turn those parties into colourful, lively and extraordinary nights, which joyfully embrace the sunrise. Local and international DJs and bands enjoy the cheerful, unrestrained atmosphere and send their appreciation skilfully through the speakers.
