The concept of choreography has changed in the course of the 20th century through the introduction of improvisation in artistic dance and decisively influenced the aesthetics of contemporary dance. As part of the professional training, the dancer and dance scholar Friederike Lampert has been invited for a week to address the theme within the professional training, in a project week in cooperation with various Austrian education institutes and in a public training lecture.

In the history of stage dance, dance improvisation first appeared only in the early 20th century. Initially used as a means of movement research and discovery, it was also used above all by American postmodern dance during the performance. In this way it brings all the possibilities of completely new choreographic concepts for stage dance into play, such as the accidental, transitory and ephemeral. In contrast to the repeatable and laid down choreography, dance improvisation as a spontaneous composition has a performance character that does not permit repetition or reproduction.
