Philipp Gehmacher

In its Entirety

This is one of dancer, performer, choreogra­pher and visual artist Philipp Gehmacher’s most intimate pieces. Philipp Gehmacher’s solo is divided into two parts and yet is a whole that firmly encloses itself. First, the artist lets the body sound, the arms speak and think independently, lets them find their way from darkness into light. Later he reduces himself to his own voice: accompanied vocally from offstage by Alex Franz Zehetbauer, he speaks of chaos, of dissolution into com­ponents and of the inevitable falling back into his own body, yet encouraging the audience to enjoy life In its Entirety.
