+++ Cancelled +++
The intimate setting of Café Sperl, located at Gumpendorfer Straße 11, 1060 Vienna, will give a selected group of interested visitors (only four people for now) the opportunity to get to know the artists, to chat, have a meal and drinks together – all in a safe environment and with the required social distancing in place. As TQW’s guest, you can either choose between cake (our personal recommendation is the Zwetschkenfleck – a kind of plum tart) or Knödel mit Ei (dumplings and egg) and a drink.
Our guests on 23 January will be Canadian dance artists and choreographers Andrew Tay and Stephen Thompson, who will be showing Make Banana Cry at TQW.
Please register until 16 January via e-mail to Theresa Rauter firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter your name, age and occupation and write us a few lines why you would like to meet Andrew Tay and Stephen Thompson in person.
