Part of Lucky Trimmer Festival is Austrian dancer, choreographer, dance teacher and founder of the art association UMFUG Dagmar Dachauer, with her piece "Wie soll ich das erklären".
The Viennese waltz from Johann Strauss is, to a great extent, well known. In her piece "Wie soll ich das erklären", Dagmar winks playfully at her own Austria origins and investigates the historic epoch of the origins of the Viennese waltz during the old Empire (1814/1815). Through her body and there - with gained knowledge, a critical yet humorous reflection of national pride and of Austria’s careless years is revealed. "Wie soll ich das erklären" is an excerpt of the evening length piece "Wunderbare Jahre."
