DANCE FROM AUSTRIA – a cooperation project between the Dampfzentrale Bern and Gessnerallee Zürich and the Tanzquartier Wien, funded by the Ministry of Education, Art and Culture

In the 2009/2010 season, the Tanzquartier Wien started the curatorial series ROCHADE:SWITZERLAND, with guest performers and an artistic-discursive accompanying programme dedicated to current choreographic work in Switzerland and supported by Pro Helvetia. In this context artists such as ZOO / Thomas Hauert, Anna Huber, Alexandra Bachzetsis, Isabelle Schad / Simone Aughterlony, and the Compagnie 7273 were presented in Vienna.

Artistic exchange with Switzerland is now to continue. In January 2011 the cooperation project between the Dampfzentrale Bern and Gessnerallee Zürich and the Tanzquartier Wien, funded by the Ministry of Education, Art and Culture begins. TANZ AUS ÖSTERREICH shows current works by budding Austrian artists as well as by established representatives of the Austrian dance and performance scene.
