PARASOL – a dance group of TQW 2023


PARASOL – a dance group of TQW 2023

PARASOL is a dance group at Tanzquartier Wien (TQW). Each year, a group of five emerging dancers and performers will get the opportunity to work with two choreographers on two dance pieces to be developed and performed at TQW.

PARASOL is a paid further training programme for young artists to experience and benefit from not only a three months rehearsal period with each of the choreographers, but also to further educate themselves in exchange with each other, the choreographers and programmers. In addition to that, they can attend all kinds of events offered at TQW: performances, body and performance practices, and theory lectures.

Since its inception in 2001, Tanzquartier Wien has been counted among the most influential dance centres in Europe. It focuses on dance and performance in its most contemporary forms.

The working periods in 2023 will be directed by the artists and choreographers Krõõt Juurak and Oleg Soulimenko.
