On the city's major stages, the 4-week ImPulsTanz festival presents the diversity of contemporary dance and performance art: with often daring premiers and top-flight classics by, among others, Mark Tompkins and Salva Sanchis.
At the Burgtheater, the British choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker , her company Rosas and the cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras present Bach’s Cello Suites in a dance masterpiece.
Marie Chouinard is looking back on her 40-year career: She and her dance company are showing a retrospective of her solos and duets at the Volkstheater.
In an expansion of the piece solos and duets, Meg Stuart and her company Damaged Goods are also taking a look back at their own creative works at the Odeon.
Other debut performances and Austrian premieres can be expected from Chris Haring, Florentina Holzinger & Cecilia Bengolea, Anne Juren and Jan Lauwers & Needcompany.
The mumok – museum moderner kunst is presenting a successful cooperation at the interface of fine art, dance and music in the ImPulsTanz program – with the mumok exhibition Doppelleben – Bildende Künstler machen Musik and works by, among others, Ivo Dimchev and Akemi Takeya. World-class dancers support beginners and professionals, children, teens and golden agers with their knowledge at more than 200 workshops of every dance style: ballet, jazz, improv, contemporary, urban dance and much more to try out. And if that's not enough, there are DJ nights and concerts in the ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge in the Burgtheater foyer to dance to each evening.
