The lab programme regularly held at the TQW Studios is dedicated to exploration and exchange between local as well as international artists and experts. Unhampered by the customary pressure to produce and present, the participants can explore general topical, specific or utterly unusual aspects of contemporary choreography and performance. Some of the subjects addressed relate to the contemporaneous performance programme at Tanzquartier Wien to enable a closer examination. However, the labs also provide those interested with a platform to inquire into urgent issues of our time, irrespective of TQW’s programme. Experts or artists curate and run the labs.
