Participation is free of charge.
What is training? What is learning? What is un-learning? Those questions refer to modes, skills and activities, dance professionals consider as natural, self-evident and necessary to stay in a state and shape to reach a goal: a body and personality that can convince at auditions, perform on stage, and can in the long run be used for earning one’s living. However, it is strange and actually quite amazing that human beings with all their flaws are well aware of these things, and benefit from a humble practice such as “training” in emergent ways. Even more so if entered in the humble yet festive spirit of the “beginner”.
Let’s honour those practices as goals within themselves. ViennaSchoolOFF – Be/Well/Come is both serious and playful and offers a full day programme at TQW free of charge. Guests can join at various points to share experience, including physical exercise, one-on-one encounters, games, a cultural political crash course, an excursion, a meal and the watching of a movie. Maybe even dancing.
Therefore we’d like to welcome everyone, who is into learning and un-learning, to participate in this hybrid of conversation-game, training and ritual.
