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!

This level system is based on experiences in the field or in related areas, which are essential for the workshop. In several workshop descriptions you will find a note about who it is addressed to. The Workshop Office Team is also happy to advise, should you have insecurities about choosing your workshop level. The first workshop day is the final day of admittance according to the teacher's decision, if your level is considerably different than the level of the workshop, you are kindly asked to switch to a more appropriate one.

o (Open Level) The Open Level is an invitation to people with a keen interest in the respective field(s) of the workshop. It is a meeting space for a crowd with varying experiences: artists of all fields, performers, actors, athletes, bodyworkers, philosophers, historians, architects, designers and scientists as well as for newcomers to the field.

Beg (Beginners)
A Beginners class provides basic knowledge in the respective field of the workshop or dance style. No specific precognition is required. A first step into the dance world!

Int (Intermediate Level)
An Intermediate class is tailored for people with some experience in (at least one of) the related field(s) of the workshop and can also be understood as a revisiting of previous skills or for example learning a new dance form, while having experience in an other dance style.

Adv (Advanced Level)
The Advanced Level is for performers and (visual) artists with extended knowledge in the related field of the workshop.

Adv Plus (Super Advanced Level) 
The Super Advanced Level mostly applies to Repertory workshops or to physically very challenging technique or partnering classes and requires professional dance and performance experience.
