"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.
Premiere at this year's ImPulsTanz - Vienna International Dance Festival:
July 18th 2022, 9pm and July 20th 2022, 7pm, Kasino at Schwarzenbergplatz, 1010 Vienna *

The current crew of new, freshly thawed Time*Sailors start their 2022 journey to a future, that already lies in the past. How will they interpret their predecessors of the ravey 1990s? How have times changed, and how will this story continue to be told?
The aspiring “timesailers” hastily pack their overalls into their duffelbags, board their ship and start to ready their body- and brainsails. The captain opens up the ship’s log, and new episodes begin to fill its pages…
Time*Sailing eventually becomes a form of art – awaiting the right moment, arriving in the moment and acting in the immediate moment. In this manner, locomotion through the dark chaos leads to the shining stars. B.G.
