Vienna Festival reframed

While most of the originally planned performances at this year's Vienna Festival were postponed to 2021 because of coronavirus, it has still been possible to present over a dozen selected musical, choreographical and theatrical pieces in 2020.

15 productions

Productions include Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's world premiere of "The Goldberg Variations", "Farm Fatale" by the French artist Philippe Quesne, Marlene Monteiro Freitas's "Mal – Embriaguez Divina" and Boris Nikitin's "24 frames per second".

Music can be experienced in the form of two concert evenings: Ensemble Modern presents Bernhard Gander's "Oozing Earth"; the metal group Gravetemple rounds off the evening.

The video installation "No Man II" by the visual artist Ho Tzu Nyen is a spooky choir of people, animals, hybrids, and cyborgs – on show in the Kärntnertorpassage at Karlsplatz. A precision combination of ballet and breakdance is promised by "A Quiet Evening of Dance" by the choreographer William Forsythe, who combines old and new pieces into a virtuoso evening.

With a total of 15 productions, the festival plays at Halls E+G in the MuseumsQuartier, at Beethovenplatz, at the Kärntnertorpassage at Karlsplatz, and at the restaurant USUS am Wasser.
