Let this gloomy winter night be hit by enlightenment – giving you this burning feeling that usually only comes with an all-too-greedy gazing into the furious blaze of sparklers. Salvation from these and other pre-Christmas threats is promised by an evening from the scene and for the scene, hosted by Porgy &Bess and ImPulsTanz, featuring amazing artists from Vienna's dance and performance scene as well as some of the local music scene's heavyweights.

We like to affectionately invite you together with your friends, colleagues and all lovers of the extraordinary to celebrate this Great Christmas Breakdown Special: a night full of sparkling show acts until the break of dawn! Songs, concerts, stand-up comedy, speech acts, performances, love letters and surprise acts nestle softly together, accompanied by tender sounds by much adored Djs and DJanes. Let the devil take tomorrow… tonight there will be friends!
