The ImPulsTanz Festival is the biggest contemporary dance festival in Europe, and every year it happens right here in Vienna. The funny thing is that I applied to come to the festival in my last year of school, and now that I'm living here, haven't set foot in a studio. It's crazy how your priorities can shift so dramatically in such a short time. I do however have a good friend here, who is a wonderful dancer, and she is doing enough dancing for both of us!

I wanted to share some photos of this year's ImPulsTanz performers. These companies and dancers are pretty much la crème de la crème when it comes to the world of contemporary dance. If photos just aren't enough, and you'd like to see an except from a dance film by the Belgian dance company Rosas, then follow this link "Rosas danst Rosas".

  1. Stumbled upon this dance blog that apparently updates with reviews throughout the festival...
