Urfahr parish church, next to the Ars Electronica Center

Holy Hydra is a two-day event in the Urfahr parish church – next to the Ars Electronica Center – with contemporary dance performances, electronic music, room-filling projections and a symposium on the theme of “sacred space = urban space”.

The central concern is to bring together different artistic disciplines and interest groups in the unique spiritual atmosphere of a sacred space, in order to make these special places, in addition to their religious significance, tangible for people of all faiths. The project sees itself as a proposal for the extent to which architecturally and culturally historically valuable spaces, such as churches, can be put to extended use.
