Workshop Centre Arsenal

Our bright Workshop location at Arsenal, which we can use for the 20th time this year – thanks to Art for Art & the Burgtheater Vienna – is not only an accumulation of dance studios, but also the heart of the ImPulsTanz day-programme. Hot spot and oasis at the same time, it is the haven and meeting point of around 1.000 dancing people from approximately 90 countries enjoying their mutual presence in addition to taking the 220 Workshops! Our Cafeteria, run by francophil, invites eyes and stomach to stay, there is WiFi, childcare, a Body Work Space and a park close-by.

The Open-Doors-Spirit

You are welcome to watch most of the workshops at the Arsenal. The studios are huge, there is enough space to find a spot next to the dance carpet without disturbing the class. Follow the movements in your thoughts, get in the mood for dancing and let yourself be carried away by the (live) music!

The Open-Doors-Events

The following events are perfect for getting into festival mood – and are free of charge!

Showings

Showings of Research Projects, Workshops and Residencies are taking place usually at the end of a week and are open for everyone interested to watch – free admission! The dates will be announced on our website, at the Arsenal Workshop Centre and via WhatsApp and Telegram on short notice.

Bodywork Space

During the festival, ImPulsTanz hosts a Bodywork Space at the Arsenal where teachers can hold one-to-one lessons. Booking is possible via the Bodywork space list, which is available at our ImPulsTanz shop at Arsenal. Further details for the units and prices are available at the Shop at the Arsenal.

Notions of beauty: Mone’ah Leezah Smile

Work In Progress showing – William Briscoe

Friday, 6 August, 18:00, FABRIK Seestadt, free admission, 3G Covid rule appy
When it comes to beauty, Western culture places a higher premium on whiteness than on blackness. As a teenager growing up in Harlem, NYC, I discovered the transformative energy of the LGBTQ+ House Ballroom scene, which helped to reshape my identity. With this residency, I am connecting the creative expressions of the House Ballroom community with the gestures, attitudes and mannerisms of traditional Western art. Using the Mona Lisa as a springboard to explore themes around ideals of beauty, I sit in (or step into) the most famous Renaissance portrait as a black, queer, gender-fluid person.

“I have a chair and it has three legs, and I've been using it all my life, it may not be comfortable and I've even fallen off it more than once, but I just don't know that there are usually 4 of them”
Each moment something happen with our physical and mental body.  And all these things leave an imprint, which form us. Sometimes wrong things happen near us and through the time we adept and it’s become  our new reality. Our brain and body adjust and distort , its stay alive but with a lot of breaks inside.
During the performance i want to share my “normal” , “my distorted reality of broken things” using different movement disciplines as ways of communication.
