ImPulsTanz 2017: Marlene Monteiro Freitas with Andreas Merk (CV/PT):  JAGUAR

ImPulsTanz Festival

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, Cecilia Bengolea & François Chaignaud, Philipp Gehmacher, Anne Juren, Ian Kaler, Marlene Monteiro Freitas & Andreas Merk (photo), Elina Pirinen, Christian Rizzo / ICI-CNN de Montpellier, Mark Tompkins and Wim Vandekeybus / Ultima Vez.

Festival for Jan Fabre

This year's key players include the Belgian director, sculptor and painter Jan Fabre, whose dramatic works are visually stunning. On 18 July, his new group piece Belgian Rules/Belgium Rules celebrates its world premier at ImPulsTanz in the Volkstheater. In a masterclass, he gives rare insights into how he works. A special Jan Fabre exhibition can be seen at the Leopold Museum from 6 July. Further cooperations at the interface of visual art and choreography can also be found in the ImPulsTanz program, such as the one with mumok – museum of modern art.

The Flemish choreography icon Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker brings her latest remake, A love Supreme, to Austria for the first time. With Salva Sanchis, she has compressed it into a feature-length piece. John Coltrane's legendary 1965 jazz album of the same name served as the musical foundation.

Workshops, parties, celebrations

World-class dancers support beginners and professionals, children, teens and golden agers with their knowledge at more than 200 workshops of every dance style: there's Parkour, Powerhouse Fitness, Yoga, Bollywood Dance or Afro Fusion to try out. And if that's not enough, there are DJ nights and concerts in the ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge in the Burgtheater foyer each evening, or parties in the casino on Schwarzenbergplatz at which to dance the night away.
