Huggy Bears is an initiative launched by Superamas and going into its first year in 2016. Their project, introduced for the first time at imagetanz, will support Vienna-based artists at the beginning of their careers in devising their projects.

Superamas - Huggy Bears - der Anfang

“Our motto is: Be flexible & adaptable. We help you in administrative, production-related and artistic matters using the generous support and help of our network partners in Vienna.” This way, Superamas want to create an environment in which the artistic substance of a project is not subordinate to production and research conditions such as the acquisition of production means. The projects as such are supposed to come first, the programme does not want to rigidly dictate forms of presentation or research conditions but be open to changing and advancing as the project does. With creative processes being accompanied by enough restraints and limitations, Huggy Bears simply wants to create a framework for creative work and be there for its artists together with its fellow networkers in Vienna.

Huggy Bears – the Beginning is an initial meeting and presentation of the artists the initiative is accompanying in 2016. All artists will be present to introduce their projects or approaches in different ways. Come give a hug to the young art!

Huggy Bears artists in 2016: Sara Lanner, Claire Lefèvre/Evandro Pedroni, Jasmin Schaitl/William “Bilwa” Costa, Pawel Dudus/Laura Eva Meuris/lab on stage.

Partners: brut, ImPulsTanz, Raum33/Elio Gervasi, Tanzquartier Wien, WUK, Studio Anne Juren/Roland Rauschmeier and Michikazu Matsune.
