Dear Dancers!

The Contact Festival Austria is truly a Special Edition!

The Festival has been lucky to be included in the external program of the „Niederösterreichische Landesausstellung Schloss Pöggstall“ a binary nationally funded county exhibit, 30 km from Yspertal which runs for 6 months.

This means for us that we have chosen to create a special edition, with 6 master teachers, teaching 6 intensives and 12 open workshops, so that you get to take 2 intensives plus open workshops from (almost) all teachers. (The exact schedule will be posted before registration in the summer).

I also announce that this will be my last festival as artistic director and organizer. I have fulfilled myself a dream to create this festival and after seven years it will be time to let go. 

We have a wonderful new team:

Isa, Barbara and Marlies are joining me this year in the core team and I hope to pass on the responsibility to them afterwards, but the future is still open.

Here are the fabulous teachers of the Contact Festival Austria Nr.6:

Anya Cloud, Eszter Gal, Martin Keogh, Charlie Morrissey, Eckhard Mueller & Dani Schwartz, Benno Voorham

So save the dates, we want to dance with you!

With warm greetings
