Entrance free of charge!

Program text

Festspielhaus forecourt

Dance/Participation Dance conquers the square outside the Festspielhaus in our season’s grand finale. The Montreal-based choreographer Sylvain Émard brings his concept ‘Le Grand Continental’ (originally created at the Festival TransAmériques in 2009) to Austria for the first time: 150 dance enthusiasts of all ages, with or without experience, are able to discover the expressive power of dance and the use of their own bodies as a means of communication. Traditional elements of line dance and the expressivity of contemporary art meet in Sylvain Émard’s choreography. An electrifying mix of the atmosphere of a public fete with contemporary dance!


  • Sylvain Émard, choreography
  • Martin Tétreault, sound design
  • 150 locally casted non-professional dancers
