Duffle bags packed, brain- and body sails afloat - the Time*Sailors are back!


In Bert Gstettner's powerful choreography, six young men move, as if in a space capsule, through time and space. Living together in a small place strengthen their relationship, but also causes conflicts and rivalry, which they manage in a humorous and expressive way.

 In an imaginative and acrobatic way the dancers use the changeable stage elements and move in the powerful choreography of Bert Gstettner. A joyful and touching dance piece, which takes us on a fantasy trip, spiced with science fiction elements and sea shanties.


"Time*Sailors - sailing around and through time" … the message was already clear back in 1995, when the original crew came aboard their time-ship and sailed for three years. 27 years later, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the company and production-label Tanz*Hotel, Bert Gstettner interprets and orchestrates his bursting 1990-era choreography with a new cast. He brings a piece of Viennese contemporary dance history back on the international stage.
