Warm-up!

Introductions, lectures and talks

As a sort of ‘warm-up’ ahead of the performances, our introductions, lectures and talks provide an opportunity for artists, experts and audiences to get together and explore in-depth the themes addressed by the various productions.

The portico in the main courtyard of the MuseumsQuartier is an open-air location that makes for a relaxed setting in which to enjoy these events, on the following dates.

Please note Due to the limited number of places available, the warm-up events operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission 30 minutes before start.
