For the opening of #MQSounds on JUNE 5, the Tanzquartier Wien hosted CIE WILLI DORNER's Dance Karaoke on the forecourt of the MuseumsQuartier Vienna, framed picturesquely between the former imperial stables and the "grand" museums (Kunsthistorisches Museum and Naturhistorisches Museum). Many attended, danced (and sang along) and had lots of fun. Good news: On SEPTEMBER 13, Dance Karaoke will be part of Vienna's Street Life Festival 2014, more soon! All about the project, the playlist of the evening and some impressions attached...

For the "Viennese" Dance Karaoke (so far versions in Dublin, England, Bozen and for ImPulsTanz have been produced) the choreographers, dancers and performers OLEG SOULIMENKO, LIEVE DE POURCQ, ALEX GOTTFARB, SEBASTIJAN GEČ, MILAN LOVIŠKA, OTTO KRAUSE, DEBORAH HAZLER, ANNA NOVAK, ADRIANA CUBIDES, BRIGITTE WILFING, STEPHANIE CUMMING, MAGDALENA CHOWANIEC, ANNA MENDELSSOHN, RAUL MAIA, CHARLOTTA RUTH and DOMINIK GRÜNBÜHEL danced along a song of their choice wearing pink sandals and black gloves. The footage was shot in APRIL 2013 in the Studios and the office of the Tanzquartier, at the stage entrance of Halle E+G... briefly in and around the MuseumsQuartier. It premiered on MAY 8, 2013.

"Dance Karaoke revitalizes the old tradition of dancing together by using the setting of the entertainment industry. It reflects the attitude of our celebrity cult generation and caricatures the zeitgeisty phenomenon of casting shows. The guests not only slip into somebody else’s shoes, they have the opportunity to find out how it feels to move like somebody else. They mirror the dancer’s movements like in a simple dance therapy setting." Willi Dorner about Dance Karaoke
