Digital Community Project

A cooperation project of the Vienna State Opera, the Vienna State Ballet, the Ballet Academy of the Vienna State Opera, the youth group »Tanzlabor« and Tanz die Toleranz.

As part of the ballet evening A Suite of Dances, the Vienna State Ballet is currently showing the work Glass Pieces by Jerome Robbins. In this piece, the choreographer deals with the urban dynamics, the driving pulse and the movements of a metropolis.

We would like to know from you what the rhythm and movements in the city look like and dance together with you as part of this Digital Community Project! Be creative and show us how you move in the city. We are curious about your ideas and look forward to receiving numerous videos and contributions.

Participate in the community dance film »Pulse of a City«

Who can take part?
Everyone who enjoys moving! Whether old or young, whether people with or without dance experience: everyone is welcome to become part of this project.

How can you participate?
Show us how you artistically realise the theme of »moving in the city« and how you move in the city. Film yourselves dancing. Make sure that the camera or your mobile phone has a firm stand and does not shake. Send your videos (max. 30 MB, no longer than 30 seconds) in landscape format using a WeTransfer link to jugend@wiener-staatsoper.at at by 10 September 2021.

What happens to my video?
Your videos will be edited into a collective community dance film and will probably be published in summer 2021.

I have questions. Who can I contact?
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Krysztina jugend@wiener-staatsoper.at.
