Whether you are a first-time visitor or dance expert: Tanzquartier Wien offers to everyone interested an individually tailored outreach programme: practical movement workshops, guided tours, rehearsal visits, introductions and artist talks give insights into the artistic working processes at the house.


If you wish to be informed regularly about upcoming dates for mediation programmes, please subscribe to our monthly newsletter TQW@more here.




TQW tune in is a gesture of invitation to you to become actively involved in events at the Tanzquartier Wien. You are welcome to discover all the facets of the house gradually and to enter unknown artistic territory with us. In this approach, based on your level of experience with contemporary dance and performance, we will be developing shared formats that facilitate getting to know one another. Whether in guided tours through the house or the backstage area, introductions to the performances, video-based overview-lectures on the contemporary dance scene or in the framework of artists’ talks, you can experience the Tanzquartier Wien as a place of meeting and exchange. You can also dive into artistic development processes at the rehearsal visits or, at another discursive level, at our lecture series. Or go for full body commitment in a taster workshop*. Anyone who is more interested in theoretical developments in performance and contemporary dance or has missed a performance is at exactly the right place in the theory & media centre.

o    Guided tour through Tanzquartier Wien (TQW / Studios, Theory- & Media Centre and TQW / Hall G if possible)

In either case the participants move themselves and are welcome to come without previous knowledge (just training clothes). Contribution towards expenses: 10 Euro.
