ImPulsTanz brings the newest works to Vienna, from Bach to Schönberg, from opera to club culture. Amongst the top choreographers are the longstanding festival supporters Mathilde Monnier, Marie Chouinard, Wim Vandekeybus/Ultima Vez and Meg Stuart.
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Boris Charmatz perform a duet to music by Johann Sebastian Bach, which is interpreted live on the Burgtheater stage by star violinist Amandine Bayer.
British leading choreographer Akram Khan is a guest both with his hit solo "DESH" and with his latest company piece "iTMOi". The latter is inspired by Stravinsky's masterpiece "The Rite of Spring", which celebrated its premier performance a hundred years ago.
ImPulsTanz dedicates an overpowering show to the New Yorker Trajal Harrell. Surprises are certainly provided by the project "Occupy the Museum", in which cult stars including Jérôme Bel and Pichet Klunchun play at the Weltmuseum Wien.
The younger generation of choreographers is represented by Ivo Dimchev, Philipp Gehmacher, Doris Uhlich and Silke Grabinger with premier performances and special formats.
Beyond the stage program, ImPulsTanz asks the audience itself to dance: whether in the evening on the dance floor in the now legendary festival lounge in Vienna's Burgtheater or at one of the 200 workshops from Urban Styles to Ballet.
