FEEDBACK. As a situation commentary and constructive criticism, location definition and perspective opening, address and corrective, self-perception and perception by the other, current relevance and optionality, noticing and simultaneous retrospective and outlook. As a focus, source of infection, centre. Feedback is a gift: a gift from the Austrian dance and performance scene and to it. In a compact programme focus, for three days a selection of work can be seen by artists who are working in various forms of cooperation with the Tanzquartier Wien: a compact and exciting insight into the current dance and performance scene in Austria, which makes the concept of the choreographic impressively experienceable in all the diversity of its media.

The symposium You' ve got my interest. Symposium on the economics of producing, between extravagance and calculation will take place in the framework of FEEDBACK.

For the beginning of the new season we have invited four international artists or artist groups for an evening. The differences of their standpoints, means and (intercultural) preconditions and references are united by a basic position that explores dance and performance art with regard to its effectiveness in the context of societal, social and everyday processes.

Whether in the analysis of the relationship of form, temporality and change, as with Kat Válastur, in their concern with the dynamics of historical, current and future narratives, as with Giuseppe Chico and Barbara Matijevic, in the artistic reflection of the individual conditions of a life in the field of contemporary dance in Morocco, as with Taoufiq Izzediou, or in their challenge to rethink one’s own concepts of work and value creation, as with Maria Baroncea, Dragana Bulut and Eduard Gabia: the proposed works are distinguished by the stringency of their choreographic handwriting, with which they challenge our perception and our praxis of individual as well as collective historiography.

Note: following the first two programme features starting at 19.30 in TQW/ Hall G, the audience is called on to choose one of the two works in the TQW / Studios (starting time 21.30). And then to celebrate the opening of the new season with us in the foyer!
