WUK performing arts

Welcome to WUK performing arts!

Performing arts have played an important role in the cultural programme of the WUK since its beginnings in the 1980s. Back then, the WUK was almost the only space for free experimentation for the Austrian dance, dance theater and performance scene, then still in its infancy; and it continues to be a special venue and trusted partner to a lively and internationally established professional scene in the field of contemporary performing arts for a Vienna audience.

WUK performing arts showcases interdisciplinary formats that oscillate between dance, theater, performance, fine art, choreography, text and video. WUK performing arts has a reputation for risk-taking, for experiment, for trust in the unknown. Whether through co-productions, guest performances or formats created specifically for WUK performing arts, it offers local and international artists time, space, publicity and support to develop and realise their projects.

WUK performing arts also cooperates with various institutions in Vienna, eg with the University of Music and Performing Arts (University Course of Applied Dramaturgy), with the autonomous area of ​​dance theater performance (ttp) within WUK, with the Kunstvolkshochschule and with brut Wien.

Through its WUK performing arts club, WUK performing arts invites anyone interested to a continuous, theoretical and practical engagement with the diversity of performative art.
