A dance performance will take place on the evening of March 23, which will also be the vernissage of an exhibition of valuable original artworks. Grete Wiesenthal’s special Viennese dance style, which caused a furor in the young independent scene before World War I, is the patron of the piece “Glückselig. Was Yesterday, Wasn’t It? An appropriation.” From the program originally performed by four female choreographers, which came out in 2023 at the Theater brut in Vienna, artistic director Andrea Amort, together with Katharina Senk, now presents a format adapted to the intimate ambience of the Villa Toscana in Gmunden, oscillating between conversation and dance.
