Philipp Gehmacher

Philipp Gehmacher (AT), born in Salzburg, studied at the London Contemporary Dance School and received a Master’s Degree in Dance Studies from the Laban Centre London. In 2003 he presented his first evening length production ›mountains are mountains‹. Following works include ›das überkreuzen beyder hände‹, a solo with the concert pianist Alexander Lonquich, ›like there’s no tomorrow‹, coproduced by Pact Zollverein and ›MAYBE FOREVER‹ created in collaboration with Meg Stuart. Philipp Gehmacher collaborates regularly with different choreographers, dancers, musicians, artists and theorists. In 2008 he curated the series STILL MOVING for Tanzquartier Wien and introduced his lecture performance format ›walk+talk‹. In 2009 and 2010 he created the video installations ›at arm’s length‹ and ›dead reckoning‹ with the visual artist Vladimir Miller. Philipp Gehmacher’s work has been presented at countless venues and major festivals in Europe and he has received awards including a Jerwood Choreography Award (2002), the Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award (2009), and in autumn 2009, the Sponsorship Award of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture, awarded for the first time in the field of dance.
