ImPulsTanz turns Volkstheater again into a first quality dance house

Up and down, forward and backwards – at the opening of the ImPulsTanz festival 2016 French choreographer Maguy Marin lets the audience dive into an almost uncessantly pulsing rhythm-frenzy. In BiT (performance of the year 2015, international critics choice) folkdance-like sequences on several slanting planes express a zest for life and allow us to perceive a more profound and ...

darker level at the same time. But also after the festival opening international dance starts keep streaming on and off of Volkstheater's stage: a.o. Ushio Amagatsu / Sankai Juku, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker / Rosas, Cie. Marie Chouinard, Wim Vandekeybus / Ultima Vez and Ismael Ivo offer five weeks of intense dance moments until the Needcompany closes the festival properly with The blind poet.

This year the ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival expands the dialogue between visual art and contemporary dance. Next to the particular workshop series visual arts X dance, curated a.o. by this year's danceWEB mentor and Golden-Lion-Awardee Tino Sehgal, some edgy, experimental opportunities for interaction between visual art and dance and choreography will evolve in the  frame of the performance programme.
