Craft Choreography

Performance Platform in Vienna


Created by the Body Architects

Team: Hygin Delimat, Nikola Majtanova, Marcin Denkiewicz


The Craft Choreography performance platform (2019-2021) was a bimonthly mini festival dedicated to presenting short movement-based performances by young international makers regardless of discipline. Next to the majority of contemporary dance and performance works, there were presented works from genres of urban dance, contemporary circus and dance film. The word craft stands for prioritizing skill in movement, interpretation and dramaturgy. The events took place in the Erbsenfabrik Vienna and at its peak (before the pandemic), gathered large audiences (exceeding the possibilities of the room). The side program included movement workshops taught by the artists (in collaboration with Viennese schools and OAED Austria). There were also lively audience-artists conversations in a format of non-hierarchical knowledge exchange. The Craft Choreography platform introduced the art of dance and movement-based performances in the district. The project played a huge role in integrating the local young art scene and bridged the aesthetic gaps by showing a large variety of artistic propositions. During the pandemic, the Craft Choreography continued in an online livestream format. The project functioned as a wonderful meeting and networking hub for the local and international community.


The project target groups: inhabitants of the district, art lovers, dance and performing arts enthusiasts and practitioners, youth, especially the invited school children, artists, curators and cultural producers.
