ImPulsTanz is considered Europe’s largest dance festival. The international dance and performance scene will once again gather in Vienna in 2024. In addition to the performances, there are 250 workshops in the Arsenal for those who don’t just want to watch, as well as the free outdoor dance classes Public Moves.
ImPulsTanz 2024 shines on the numerous stages and in Vienna’s museums with its unique range: highlights of dance history, revivals and world premieres can be seen, from large stage shows to intimate formats, from icons to newcomers.
This year’s edition presents 51 productions in 15 venues – from the Burgtheater and Volkstheater to the Odeon and Vienna’s museums. The programme includes 9 world premieres, 37 Austrian premieres, 3 ImPulsTanz Classics and 11 pieces from the [8:tension] Young Choreographers’ Series. The festival also invites you to 6 film and music video programmes, 5 installations, a book presentation and every evening to the ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge in the Burgtheater Vestibule.
This year’s festival will open with four participatory installations by US choreographer William Forsythe at the MAK – Museum of Applied Arts. Here you can experience his pendulum labyrinth Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time, No. 2, in which you become part of the choreography yourself. For the performance opening at the Burgtheater, William Kentridge is staging The Great Yes, The Great No, an artistic, spiritual and political work.
