Vienna [ENA] Now when summer with its good weather, parties and holidays is over, it is time to keep good memories about it. In this contribution I would like to tell you about the ImPulsTanz festival which is one of the most fascinating events of this summer in Vienna. This is an international dance festival which takes place in Vienna every year. This summer it was its 36th anniversary.

During the festival the entire city turned into a party and cultural clubbing space with several performances in various locations and fascinating meetings with dancers. The 65 performances took place in 21 locations and included works of famous artists like Pina Bausch but also works of young choreographers. The opening of the festival was celebrated in the performance following the Shakespeare famous tragedy “Macbeth”. One of the most controversial artists of our time, Gottfried Helnwein, designed costumes for this performance and music was written by Kurt Schwertsik.

The festival also brought fascinating performances from other countries. Suash of nasa4nasa was the performance of two Egyptian dancers who became famous through social media. In their performance they turn the stage into a squash court in Cairo and transform a strictly defined space into the landscape of collapse where their synchronously moving bodies are navigating through waves of multi-layered music and through multiple feelings from hope to intensity, conflict, loneliness and culmination.

ImpulsTanz was also a successful cooperation with museums in Vienna where two famous modern arts museums participated. The Leopold Museum dedicated the entire floor with various installations around the topics of international dance and performance arts. The Ludwig Museum opened a special exhibition on Patterns and Decoration. The exhibition Freedom and Form included various dances and performances with the closing exhibition of Dance of Urgency.

What is Vienna in summer? It is a festival area with rich cultural scene, various performances and events, combination of nature and arts but also of a Viennese life style of coffee houses, heuriger restaurants, warm summer evenings in the nature and joy of life. It is certainly worth to combine both: the summery experience of the city and the cultural pleasure of ImpulsTanz performances.
